New abuse lawsuits filed against convicted ex-priest Daniel McCormack

CHICAGO (WLS) -- New accusations are emerging against a former Catholic priest and convicted pedophile.

Two men have filed lawsuits against now-defrocked priest Daniel McCormack and the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Both of the alleged victims claim they were abused between 2000 and 2003 while McCormack was a pastor at Saint Agatha's Parish on Chicago West Side.

McCormack was released from the priesthood in 2007 after pleading guilty to abusing five other children.

He has been at a mental facility for the past six years.
