PRIEST FACING RAP IN ALTAR-BOY GROPING
Jorge Pintado, a 39 year old Manhattan Catholic priest, has been charged with sexual abuse after he allegedly groped a 16 year old altar boy Tuesday evening in the rectory of the Good Shepherd Church in Inwood, just moments after he celebrated Mass. The victim, who also sings in the church choir, told cops that Pintado grabbed his genitals through his pants when he hugged him. The teen said Pintado had been hugging him inappropriately since June. Pintado has also been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. If he is convicted of the charges, he faces up to a year behind bars.
