Tennessee priest admits abuse, urges prayer for victim

April 20, 2010

A retired Tennessee priest who was suspended last week following an abuse allegation has admitted to the abuse. Father William Casey, who was jailed on April 19, faces a charge of a crime against nature for a 1977 incident that took place in a North Carolina hotel when the male victim was 11 years old. Father Casey told a Tennessee newspaper that he urged prayers “for the healing of [the victim] and his family, and for all others who are suffering as a result of this situation.”
