CHICAGO - A priest already accused of molesting three boys was charged Friday with sexually abusing two others, authorities said.

The Rev. Daniel McCormack was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, said Cook County state's attorney spokesman John Gorman. McCormack is accused of molesting a 10-year-old and an 11-year-old.

He pleaded not guilty in March to charges that he molested three boys between September 2001 and January 2005. The boys were 8, 9 and 11 years old at the time.

A telephone message left with McCormack's attorney, Patrick Reardon, was not immediately returned Friday night. McCormack was in police custody and was scheduled to appear before a judge Saturday, Gorman said.
