Pedophile priest hearings open to public

November 4, 2009 (CHICAGO) That was the ruling Wednesday from a Cook County judge in the case of Daniel McCormack. He pleaded guilty in 2007 to fondling five boys while he served as a Roman Catholic priest. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

McCormack was set to be released in September, but prosecutors are arguing that he remains a danger and should continue receiving treatment at a secure facility.
