August 2, 2007 — A one-time Catholic priest who pleaded guilty to molesting a 6-year-old boy on Long Island slashed his throat the day before he was to go to jail.

Barry Ryan, 59, survived the suicide attempt, said Suffolk County district attorney spokesman Robert Clifford.

Ryan pleaded guilty in 2004 to sexual conduct against a child in the second degree for forcing the boy to perform oral sex the year before.
