An Ohio grand jury has indicted a priest on a felony charge of soliciting sex at a Cleveland park.
The 68-year-old McGonegal was arrested earlier this month after he allegedly solicited a park ranger who was in plainclothes at a park near downtown Cleveland.
Police reports say McGonegal told authorities he has tested positive for HIV.
A message was left after hours Friday for McGonegal's attorney, Henry Hilow (HY'-low). Hilow tells The Plain Dealer that McGonegal is "a good man and a good priest."
A spokesman for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland says it's working with McGonegal as he addresses his issues. McGonegal has stepped away from parish duties.
