PHILADELPHIA - A Philadelphia jury is resuming deliberations for a tenth day on the fate of two Roman Catholic priests.
Monsignor William Lynn is the first U.S. church official charged over his handling of child sexual-abuse complaints. He faces up to 21 years in prison if convicted of conspiracy and child endangerment for allegedly helping the Philadelphia archdiocese cover up the complaints. However, an appeal seems likely if he's convicted.
The Rev. James Brennan is charged with attempted rape and child endangerment. His accuser says he was molested in 1996.
The deliberations follow 10 weeks of evidence.
Jurors have asked more than two dozen questions as they struggle with the case, repeatedly asking for help with the law on conspiracy and endangerment.
Seven men and five women are on the jury.
Jury selection resumed Tuesday in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial as prosecutors and the defense seek to fill out a panel of 12 jurors and six alternates in a case that has attracted worldwide publicity.Read More »
