Philly to retry priest after abuse trial deadlock
PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia prosecutors announced plans Monday to retry an ousted priest on an attempted rape charge after a jury deadlocked on the case last month.
The Rev. James Brennan, 49, is accused of trying to rape a 14-year-old boy in 1996 at the priest's apartment.
Brennan has admitted in a church trial that he wrestled with the boy, slept with him and let him watch porn, according to trial testimony. But he denies molesting him.
