Priest indicted in 2nd child rape case

(Continued)

In August, an official of the Salesians told reporters that McCormick has not been involved in active ministry since 2008, though he remains a priest.

In 2009, the order settled with three men who say McCormick abused them while they were attending a seminary in Goshen, N.Y., where McCormick was the director in the late 1970s, before he went to the Sacred Heart center in Ipswich. In 2002, McCormick was forced to resign from a teaching job in St. Petersburg, Fla., amid allegations of inappropriate contact with a female student.

Civil attorney Mitchell Garabedian said yesterday that he represents more than 10 individuals in civil lawsuits against McCormick, including the victim in last summer’s indictment.

McCormick’s attorney in the criminal case, Stephen Neyman, did not return a call yesterday seeking comment.
