Bail denied
In brief: Sex case priest has bail denied
A US federal judge has denied bail to a priest who is fighting extradition to Ireland where he is wanted on sex abuse charges.

Authorities here accuse Patrick Joseph McCabe of molesting six boys from 1973 to 1981.

The San Francisco judge agreed with prosecutors who argued that McCabe was a flight risk if freed.

McCabe also is the subject of several lawsuits by alleged victims in California.

McCabe's lawyer, Robert Beles, says his 74-year-old client denies the charges.
