A defrocked Catholic priest who admitted in 2007 to abusing five children has now been arrested and charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, Chicago law enforcement confirmed.

Daniel McCormack was taken into custody over allegations that involve another victim who was 10 during the alleged abuse, which took place in 2005, Cook County State’s Attorney spokesperson Sally Daley said to NBC 5.

McCormack admitted he abused five children years ago and was sentenced to five years in prison and booted from the priesthood. He’s been staying at a state mental health facility, NBC 5 reported.

The details of the latest abuse allegation haven’t been released, but McCormack is set for a bond hearing on Thursday, NBC 5 reported.
