A priest in residence has filled in for a Catholic church pastor who was arrested in Cleveland for allegedly soliciting sex in a park.
He was arrested Friday after allegedly soliciting a park ranger who was in plainsclothes at Edgewater Park. Police reports say McGonegal told authorities he has tested positive for HIV.
Cleveland Catholic Diocese records show the 68-year-old McGonegal has been a priest since 1971. A phone message was left for him.
The Diocese said in a statement it has a policy of cooperating with civil authorities in such matters.
