Judge Enters Not Guilty Plea For Priest Accused Of Sex Abuse


POSTED: 4:06 pm EST March 6, 2006

MIAMI -- A former South Florida Catholic priest silently faced a judge on Monday in his arraignment on charges of drugging and raping young boys.

Neil Doherty, 62, was arrested in February and is being held without bond on five sex-related charges.

Neither he nor his attorney spoke at the hearing, so the judge entered an automatic not guilty plea.
