ELKHORN, Wis. — A priest convicted molesting two boys in Wisconsin is back behind bars for failing to comply with the sex offender registry.

The Reverend Donald McGuire was arrested for failing to return information needed to update his registered status.

The 77-year-old McGuire was in Walworth County Circuit Court yesterday trying for a new trial on the nearly 40-year-old conviction.

Judge James Carlson denied every defense motion.

Last year McGuire was sentenced to seven years in prison and 20 years probation after being convicted of 5 counts of indecent behavior with a child in February of that year.

Now McGuire will have to go to the Court of Appeals to try to overturn his convictions.
