PHILADELPHIA - There will be no verdict this week for two Roman Catholic priests on trial -- one for allegedly molesting a teen and one for allegedly covering up abuse complaints at the Philadelphia archdiocese.
The jury has deliberated for five days, but won't meet today because of a family graduation.
Jurors will return Monday, but other graduation conflicts are possible if the talks drag on.
Monsignor William Lynn is the first U.S. church official charged for his handling of abuse complaints. He's charged with conspiracy and child endangerment.
The Rev. James Brennan is charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy in 1999, and with endangering children.
Five women and seven men, some with Catholic ties, are serving on the jury. The trial's been under way since late March.
Prosecutors and the defense team on Wednesday also selected three of six alternates, and two of them are black.Read More »
