A Roman Catholic priest's bond is set at $1 million for sexually assaulting a resident of a developmental center south of Chicago.

The Illinois State Police arrested Rev. Richard Jacklin on allegations that he assaulted a resident at the Shapiro Developmental Center in Kankakee.

Kankakee County State's Attorney Jim Rowe told a judge that a nurse walked in on Jacklin performing a sex act on a 39-year-old man. The victim has been a patient at Shapiro since 2010, he's paralyzed and has an intellectual disability.

65-year-old Jacklin was charged with criminal sexual assault by force and sexual misconduct on a person with a disability.

According to the Diocese of Joliet, Jacklin was ordained in June 2, 1984 and had been assigned to Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Goodrich since 2005.
