Woman claims criminal sexual conduct by priest

Here's an unusual story about a priest who has been charged with criminal sexual conduct for an incident that took place during private Mass in a woman's parents' Minnesota home in 2010. The 33-year-old priest has been charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct by clergy. His attorney claims that he is innocent and that the charges are being placed for the woman's own personal gain. If you have a case like this one, understand that consent may not be a good defense for you.

What are some things that could happen if you get a DWI?

If you're stopped and arrested for a DWI, you could be looking a number of consequences in your future. If you're convicted of the charges against you, then you could be charged with anything from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on factors such as how many times you've been convicted for driving while intoxicated and if the stop was related to an accident that resulted in injuries or deaths.
