2 more alleged sex abuse victims sue Chicago Archdiocese

The Archdiocese of Chicago is facing two more sex abuse lawsuits, the latest in a series of allegations against former priest Daniel McCormack.

Two men claim McCormack sexually abused them while they were students at Catholic schools in Chicago.

One man said the alleged abuse started when he was about 8 years old and continued from 2002 to 2006, while he was a student at Our Lady of the Westside Catholic School. He said it happened while he attended an after-school "safe" program.

The other man said the alleged abuse started when he was about 10 years old and continued from 2003 to 2006, while he attended Saint Agatha's Catholic Church and played basketball on the parish's team.

McCormack is currently serving a five-year prison sentence in a state mental health facility.
