By the ancient canons, a priest charged with any crime was interdicted the exercise of his sacerdotal functions (Can. 11, 13 caus 2, qu. 5). By the law of the decretals, those who were accused of any crime could not, before their absolution, accuse another, give evidence in a court of law, nor be promoted to any order (De Testib. et. Attest. c.56). The chapter Omnipotens de Accus. decides, in like manner, that no one accused of a crime ought to be elevated to any honor or dignity.
