McCarrick was found incapable to stand trial for a crime.

McCarrick was found incapable to stand trial for a crime.

A state district judge determined in criminal court on Wednesday that former cardinal Theodore McCarrick lacks the mental capacity to face trial in Massachusetts on charges of criminal sexual assault.

Following independent evaluations of McCarrick’s mental health by medical specialists retained by both the state’s and his legal teams, who both agreed on his incapacity, the charges against him were dropped.

Three counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14 were brought against McCarrick in state court in connection with claims that he sexually assaulted a teenager who was a family acquaintance during a wedding ceremony at Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, in the 1970s.

James Grein, a former resident of New Jersey who is now 64 years old, was revealed to be that adolescent by NorthJersey.com in February.
