Ex-Priest's Jurors Reach a Verdict on One Count
Los Angeles Times
February 18, 2006
The jury deliberating child molestation charges against a retired Roman Catholic priest said Friday that it had reached agreement on one charge but was deadlocked on four others.
The single verdict was sealed by Superior Court Judge Curtis Rappe, who ordered the jurors to return on Tuesday for deliberations in the trial of Michael Wempe.
The one count on which the panel reached a verdict involved oral copulation allegedly committed in a car.
