For immediate release: Friday October 25, 2013
Cleveland priest charged with three felony charges.
Fr. James McGonegal was arrested after soliciting sex from a uniformed park ranger.
It is important that anyone in his parish, St. Ignatius of Antioch, that has any more information come forward in order to provide prosecutors with as much information as possible to keep this predator away from children or other possible targets.
We hope Cleveland Catholics will continue to speak out about abuse and cover ups. We hope every single Cleveland Catholic or citizen who sees, suspects or suffers abuse will call police, expose wrongdoers, protect kids, deter cover ups and start healing.
