Mull was committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of 0,000 bail following a preliminary arraignment Sunday before District Judge Joseph K. A preliminary hearing before Barner is scheduled for Nov.
A Pennsylvania grand jury implicated more than 50 priests and religious leaders who have served at churches across the state in a sex-abuse scandal dating back 40 years.
The grand jury alleges Mc Caa would victimize altar boys, making them take their pants off under their cassocks so he could reach under "to touch and squeeze" their genitals.
Victims, male and female children as young as 6, reported genital fondling and said they were forced to participate in or watch masturbation, the report said.
Children said they were forced to perform or receive oral sex from priests and some reported being anally raped.
The Pennsylvania Attorney General announced the findings of a two-year investigation into the Roman Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown Tuesday, saying hundreds of children were subjected to abuse that was masked by two bishops who averted probes into the claims and created a "payout chart" to quietly compensate victims based on the level of abuse.
A 147-page grand jury report made public Tuesday describes a predatory abattoir of youthful innocence in which boys were hypnotized and made to drink alcohol to soften them up for priests to molest and rape.
The details of the accusations are revealed in detail in the grand jury report.
Priests allegedly used alcohol and hypnosis to coerce children into the sexual behavior, which happened in rectories, parish offices, cars and on trips, the pages and pages of findings reveal.
Others were forced to go nude beneath their robes so a priest could grope their genitals, the report revealed.
Criminal charges are not being filed because many of the priests accused of abuse have died and the statute of limitations has expired.
Instead they chose to "shield the institution and themselves," the report said.
"Because of their choices and failed leadership, hundreds of children suffered," according to the grand jury report.
Witnesses say one priest molested the children while listening to Bill Cosby records.
