Father McGuire paper trail comes to light

Tribune religion reporter Manya Brachear speaks on newly released documents in the Donald McGuire case from 2003, when McGuire was criminally convicted as a sex offender. These documents revealed that the Chicago Jesuits knew about McGuire’s actions over the 40 years he was abusing boys but still covered for him, despite numerous complaints from other priests and parents.
