McCarrick faces criminal charge for assault on minor

July 29, 2021

CWN Editor's Note: Disgraced former cardinal Theodore McCarrick has been charged with a sexual assault on a teenage boy. The charge involves an incident that allegedly took place in Massachusetts in 1974. Because McCarrick was not a Massachusetts resident, and left the state shortly after the alleged incident, the statute of limitations has not expired and a criminal charge can be pursued. McCarrick was laicized in 2019 because of his sexual misconduct and abuse of the confessional.
