– A Philadelphia Archdiocesan priest now faces a preliminary hearing in August after being charged with the sexual assault of a 10 year old altar boy in Philadelphia in 1997.

The defense attorney says McCormick has pleaded NOT guilty during an arraignment and they look forward to defending against this 15-year-old set of facts.

The alleged victim came forward late last year and went to police.

Special Victim’s unit Captain John Darby says current events played a role in his decision.
