(CBS) CHICAGO A Cook County judge set bond at $200,000 Saturday for a Roman Catholic priest in the alleged sexual abuse of two boys.

Cook County state's attorney's office spokesman John Gorman says Daniel McCormack, 37, was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

CBS 2's Mike Flannery reports that Central Bond Court (Br. 1) Judge Colleen Hyland set the bond for McCormack on closed-circuit television on Saturday.

Gorman says the priest allegedly assaulted the two children at St. Agatha Church, at 3147 W. Douglas Blvd. on the city's West Side.
