Tempers were flaring on day seven of jury deliberations in the Philadelphia priest sex abuse trial.

The lawyer for Rev. James Brennan exploded in court Tuesday, frustrated with the jury's frequent questions.

Brennan's attorney scolded the judge, saying the jury has to do their job.

Brennan is charged with attempted rape and child endangerment. He is on trial with Monsignor William Lynn, the first U.S. church official to be charged for his handling of priest abuse complaints.
