Delaware crime: Wilmington pastor charged with embezzlement

| February 10, 2011

WILMINGTON — A Roman Catholic pastor of two city parishes — including one that counted Vice President Joe Biden as a past congregant — is being accused of embezzling more than $350,000 from the parishes.

The Rev. Cornelius J. Breslin, 59, who had been pastor of the parishes of St. Patrick and St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception until Wednesday, turned himself in at the New Castle County Courthouse and entered pleas of not guilty to the charges.

When he was a U.S. senator, Joe Biden regularly attended Mass at St. Patrick's and was close with a previous pastor, the Rev. James Trainor, who died in 2004.
