Court Today For Accused Priest McCormack


Bob Roberts Reporting

CHICAGO (WBBM Newsradio 780) -- A West Side priest now charged with molesting at least five children appears again Monday before a Criminal Courts judge on the two latest charges.

Fr. Daniel McCormack appears at 12 noon in Violence Court (Br. 66).

WBBM Newsradio 780's Bob Roberts reports one of the complaints, lodged late Friday, accuses Fr. McCormack of fondling a 10-year-old boy who played on the basketball team he coached at Presentation School. It allegedly happened once, in the rectory of Saint Agatha's Church, at 3142 W. Douglas Blvd.

The second complaint accuses Fr. McCormack of fondling another Presentation School student, an 11-year-old boy, almost daily in classrooms at the school, at 3900 W. Lexington St., between last September and Jan. 15 -- a time during which he was already under suspicion.
