TX - Priest charged with groping teen during 'King Kong'
MARBLE FALLS, Texas (AP) — A Roman Catholic priest accused of groping a 16-year-old boy at a movie theater during a showing of "King Kong" has been charged with indecency with a child by sexual contact.
Father Paul M. Clogan, 74, was arrested Friday as he left the theater, police Capt. F.T. Goodwin said in Monday's online edition of the Austin American-Statesman. Clogan was free on bond Monday. Clogan sat next to the teen in the theater, Goodwin said. The boy, who did not know Clogan, told investigators the priest groped him about an hour after the movie started.

Doesn't this just make you ill! At age 74 I am sure this is not the first time he has molested a child. I don't care if he is 74, I hope they put him .

I'm glad this was brought to light and not just swept under the rug like so many other cases of Catholic Preist molesting children.
I'm not Catholic... and it really makes me sad for Catholic Church members to hear about these cases of molestation. I don't look down on the entire church because of these disgusting priest... but I do think there needs to be more done about the fact these cases are covered up by the "Church".
It really saddens me that they smear the name of good people with no reguard to the damage they are doing to the church.

Sounds like a case of a career pedophile whose Alzheimers/senile dementia finally caught up with him and unintentionally outted him. Groping a teenaged boy he DIDN'T KNOW in a movie theater? He's lucky he didn't get beaten to a pulp right then and there.
