Sexual misconduct trial postponed

From staff reports

ST. PAUL -- The trial for a former Rochester priest accused of sexual misconduct has been moved to March.

The Rev. Edward McGrath, a former Pax Christi priest, is charged in Ramsey District Court with fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct, a misdemeanor. His trial was set for Thursday, but it has been changed to March 15. He has pleaded innocent.

McGrath was arrested in May after allegedly rubbing the genitals of an undercover police officer in a St. Paul park.
