Cardinal Theodore McCarrick

Former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who was stripped of his position within the Catholic Church and defrocked following a Vatican investigation that confirmed he had molested children and adults, has been charged with the sexual assault of a teenage boy during a wedding reception in the 1970s.

Court documents reportedly detail that McCarrick has been charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery on an individual over 14. 

The attorney representing the man alleging the abuse says McCarrick is the first cardinal in the United States ever to be criminally charged with a sexual crime against a minor.  Read more from American Voices.
