Priest, teacher convicted of abuse

PHILADELPHIA — A jury convicted a priest and a teacher Wednesday in a church sex abuse case that rocked the Philadelphia archdiocese and sent a church official to prison for child endangerment.

The verdict supports accounts by a 24-year-old policeman’s son that he was sexually abused by the Rev. Charles Engelhardt and sixth-grade teacher Bernard Shero in about 1999.
