CORRECTION: Cardinal Mahony did not face grand jury

February 04, 2010

Earlier this week, CWN reported that Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles was questioned for 5 hours before a federal grand jury. That report was inaccurate. Cardinal Mahony's testimony came in a civil lawsuit brought by a victim of sexual abuse-- not the grand-jury investigation.

CWN regrets this reporting error.
