One incident took place in Wellesley, Massachusetts in June 1974 at the victim's brother's wedding, where the victim said McCarrick allegedly pulled him aside and told him, "Your dad wants you to come with me and have a talk. You're being mischievous at home and not attending church. We need to go outside and have a conversation," according to the complaint. The victim told investigators McCarrick told the victim to take down his pants and then held and "kissed" his genitalia, according to the complaint. The complaint states that the victim told investigators that McCarrick repeatedly sexually abused him over the years, including when he was an adult, abuse that took place in nearby Newton, Massachusetts, when he was older. The disturbing truths in the new Vatican scandal report The criminal charges make McCarrick the highest ranking Catholic official in the US to face criminal charges for sex abuse of a minor, according to the unnamed victim's attorney, Mitchell Garabedian. "Historically, this is the first time ever in the United States that a Cardinal has been criminally charged with a sexual crime against a minor," Garabedian said in a news release. "It takes an enormous amount of courage for a sexual abuse victim to report having been sexually abused to investigators and proceed through the criminal process." Barry Coburn, an attorney for McCarrick, told CNN in a statement, "We are going to address this issue in the courtroom."
