Former Vt. man accused of trying to have sex with infants


A former Vermont man who was studying to be a priest is accused of trying to have sex with infants.

Investigators say Joel Wright — who now lives in Ohio — traveled to San Diego with the intent of meeting with a trafficker — who would take him to Mexico where he would adopt or own a child — and then have sex with the infant.

Wright — who was in seminary school for a semester — has since been suspended.
