A Pennsylvania Catholic priest pleaded guilty Wednesday to sexually abusing two boys. Prosecutors say Reverend David Lee Poulson sexually abused an altar boy in the church and made him confess afterward, as well as assaulting him—and attempting to assault another boy—at hunting camp. Poulson was arrested and charged in May following the explosive Pennsylvania grand jury investigation into systematic widespread sexual abuse in the church.
