Final Trial Conference Today In Priest Trial

A final trial conference is scheduled today in Barnstable Superior Court for the former Cape Cod priest charged with rape.

On Thursday a trial date of June 6 was set for Mark Hession on two counts of rape and one count of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.

He pleaded not guilty in January of 2021.

The alleged incidents happened while Hession was the priest at Our Lady of Victory Parish in Centerville.

The Catholic Church suspended him five years ago for misconduct.
