Priest cleared of charges in Midway Airport sex abuse case

A Roman Catholic priest has been cleared of sexual abuse charges.

Father Bede Jagoe was accused of fondling a man and trying to kiss him in an elevator at Midway Airport, two years ago.

A Cook County judge looked at airport surveillance video from that day, and found no evidence to back up the accuser’s claims.

Father Jagoe is 79-years-old.

The Dominican Friars Central Province says it’s pleased he lived long enough to see his name cleared.
