Former Md. priest agrees to plea

A Frederick County prosecutor says a defrocked Roman Catholic priest has agreed to a plea deal to resolve charges he sexually abused an altar boy in 1976.

Seventy-four-year-old Thomas Bevan of Cascade has a hearing scheduled for Friday morning in Frederick.

Bevan’s lawyer didn’t return a call from The Associated Press.

Bevan was indicted in January on two counts of child abuse. He denied then that he abused an altar boy when he was associate pastor of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Frederick.

The Archdiocese of Baltimore removed Bevan in August as pastor of the Church of St. Patrick in Cumberland.
