Phoenix Priest Indicted For Alleged Sexual Misconduct

Maricopa County Prosecutors say a Catholic priest in Phoenix has been indicted on charges of alleged sexual misconduct with two boys under the age of 15.

The County Attorney's office says a grand jury has indicted 74-year-old John Dallas Spaulding on six counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and one count of molestation of a child.

Spaulding could not be located to comment on the charges.

His defense attorney also has not commented.

Prosecutors say the abuse occurred between 2003 and 2007 at parishes in Phoenix and Mesa.
