Ex-Priest's Sex-Abuse Trial under Way in Illinois

The Arizona Republic

October 13, 2008

Two men testified before a Chicago jury Friday that the same Jesuit priest accused of molesting two Phoenix brothers had forced them to engage in various sexual activities.

Donald McGuire, 78, is on trial in Illinois, accused of sexually abusing a young teenager whose mother sent him to live with the priest in 1999. The now 22-year-old testified that the abuse lasted through 2003.

Two Phoenix men came forward earlier this year after learning that a Chicago man had levied similar accusations against McGuire.

The brothers said they were molested between 1988 and 2002, when McGuire would stay with the family for Arizona retreats.
