SALEM, Massachusetts — A retired Roman Catholic priest imprisoned for child rape has been sentenced to 8 to 10 more years behind bars for assaulting another boy at a Massachusetts summer camp in the 1980s.

The Essex District Attorney's Office says 74-year-old Richard McCormick pleaded guilty Monday in Salem Superior Court to a reduced charge of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. He had been charged with child rape. The new sentence began Monday, and he isn't getting any credit for time already served.

McCormick is serving an 8- to 10-year prison sentence imposed last November for repeatedly raping a boy at the now-defunct Salesian Brothers' Sacred Heart camp in Ipswich in 1981 and 1982.

Monday's sentence was for assaulting a 7-year-old boy at the same camp in 1982 and 1983.
