Monterey County prosecutor called back two police officers to clarify their testimony Thursday in a hearing for a Salinas priest accused of sexually assaulting a teen.

Arguments are scheduled at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 16, followed by a ruling from Superior Court Judge Terrance Duncan.
The Rev. Antonio Cortes of St. Mary of the Nativity Church in Salinas, 42, was ordered to stand trial on felony charges of sodomy with a minor and misdemeanor counts of possession of child pornography. He was placed on paid administrative leave after his arrest. His arrest came two days after a boy made the molestation claims to Salinas police.
