PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 22 (UPI) — Jury selection entered the second day Wednesday in the sex-abuse and child-endangerment trial of three Philadelphia priests, official said.
Six defense attorneys and three prosecutors spent much of the session examining questionnaires filled out by 250 potential jurors.
William Brennan, a defense attorney for the Rev. James J. Brennan, accused of sexually abusing a boy in the 1990s, told The Philadelphia Inquirer the jury selection could take weeks, indicating one potential juror who made the first cut had written on a questionnaire, “As a Catholic, I am disgusted by these allegations.”
