No verdict yet in sexual-assault trial of Phila. priest
PHILADELPHIA The jury in the sex-assault trial of the Rev. Andrew McCormick, a Catholic priest accused of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old altar boy at a Philadelphia church in 1997, finished its first full day of deliberations Friday without a verdict and will resume its talks Monday.
Before leaving, the Common Pleas Court jury asked Judge Gwendolyn N. Bright to again instruct its members in the law when they return.
McCormick, 57, is charged in five counts involving sexual assault, child endangerment, and corrupting minors in an incident that allegedly occurred when McCormick was a priest at St. John Cantius Church in Bridesburg.
