Suing priest for sexual molestation


(WTNH, Nov. 18, 2005 6:03 PM ) _ He's accused of sexually molesting a former altar boy. Now, years later, Father Daniel McSheffery is being forced to answer to those allegations. It was captured in a taped deposition that has been obtained by News Channel 8.

The lawyer representing Father McSheffery is furious that we have this video tape. The alleged victim in this case isn't just suing McSheffery, he wants him prosecuted criminally.

"What is your name?"
"Daniel McSheffery."

It's hard to believe, says one of the alleged victims of Father Daniel McSheffery, this is the same man. The same 6'4" charismatic priest that used to deliver sermons from the pulpit of Saint Augustine's Church in North Branford.

"He had this big booming voice and he seemed like a really confident man of God."
