Walworth County District Attorney Phillip Koss said Friday that a prominent Jesuit priest who was convicted there last year of indecent behavior with two high school boys on retreats in Wisconsin in the 1960s is under investigation in a more recent allegation and could face additional charges.
Koss filed a petition Aug. 22 seeking to revoke the bond of Father Donald McGuire, 77, who was allowed to go back to the Chicago area last year while appealing the conviction. A hearing is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Thursday before Walworth County Circuit Judge James Carlson.
Koss filed the petition one day after a 21-year-old college student filed suit in Illinois accusing McGuire of molesting him from 1999 to 2003 in 12 states and six countries - including Walworth County - as the priest traveled to give spiritual retreats on behalf of the Jesuits. McGuire's ministerial career had included giving retreats for Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity in India and elsewhere, and members of her order were present in the courtroom when he was sentenced last year to seven years in prison.
