Father McCormack enters not guilty plea


March 1, 2006 - A Roman Catholic priest charged with sexually abusing three young boys entered a not guilty plea at a court arraignment Wednesday morning.

Prosecutors say Daniel McCormack was molesting the children between 2001 and 2005 when he was working at Saint Agatha's on Chicago's West Side.
His arrest renewed criticism against the Chicago Archdiocese for their handling of priest sex abuse cases. Allegations of McCormack's abuse were brought to the church's attention months before he was charged.
