Disgraced Ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick Criminally Charged with Sexual Assault of a Minor| National Catholic Register

BOSTON — Former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has reportedly been charged with sexual assault of a teenage boy, a crime alleged to have occurred in the 1970s.  McCarrick was dismissed from the clerical state by Pope Francis in 2019, after the Vatican conducted an expedited canonical investigation and found McCarrick guilty of “solicitation in the Sacrament of Confession, and sins against the Sixth Commandment with minors and with adults, with the aggravating factor of the abuse of power.” The Associated Press reported on Thursday that, according to court documents obtained by the Boston Globe, McCarrick was charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14.
