BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A man who has accused a former Catholic priest of molesting him as a youth gave graphic testimony about the alleged acts on the second day of the trial.

William Casey is charged with committing the crimes while he was a priest at St. Dominic's Catholic Church in Kingsport in the 1970s. Casey is now 78 years old and lives in Greeneville.

Warren Tucker, 46, of Jeffersonville, Ind., has gone public with his claims that Casey molested him when he was an altar boy.

Tucker testified Tuesday about at least three sexual encounters with Casey, starting when he was 13, the Kingsport Times-News reported.

Tucker said he had no desire to have sex with Casey but felt powerless to resist someone he believed then to be "God on earth."
