Priest Accused of Sexually Abusing Child

November 12, 2009

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago says it found "credible evidence" that a priest on the city's West Side sexually abused a child.

Reverend Edward Maloney is a retired priest who served at St. Mark Roman Catholic Church.

A letter to parishioners says he was removed from the ministry several months ago after the archdiocese learned about allegations of abuse that took place about two decades ago.

Maloney is 80-years old. He denies the allegations.
