Authorities dig deeper into background of charged priest


January 26, 2006 - Police say they're looking into more allegations against a Chicago priest recently charged with sexual abuse.

The Reverend Daniel McCormack was charged last week with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for allegedly abusing two boys while he was a priest at Saint Agatha Church on the city's West Side.
Now police say they're looking into whether McCormack may have abused a student at another school in 2000.

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says investigators yesterday interviewed another teenager about allegations that he was abused by the priest.

Bond says McCormack has declined to answer investigators questions after his lawyer advised him not to talk with police.
