Priest's extradition sought in sex cases
The lawyer for a fugitive U.S. priest wanted in Arizona on charges of sexually molesting boys urged an Italian court on Friday not to send his client home because he risked being killed in prison.
The Rev. Joseph Henn, 56, wanted since 2003, has been living under house arrest at the headquarters of his religious order in Rome.
Henn, who has denied the charges, was not present at the hearing. U.S. authorities want him extradited to face charges of molesting three boys when he worked in a parish in the Phoenix diocese in the 1980s.
