Shock Probation Asked for Molester

CLEVELAND (AP) - A Catholic chaplain at the Cuyahoga County Jail has urged a common pleas judge to place admitted child molester Brother Paul Botty on shock probation.

In a letter to Judge Donald C. Nugent, the Rev. Dismas Boeff complained of disparity in sentencings among inmates. Botty on Wednesday was sentenced to 7 ? years in jail for sex crimes against boys at St. Joseph High School.

"In the past 10 years, I have seen the lowest scum bags and degenerates get probation on top of probation on top of parole just because they were high when doing the crime," Boeff wrote. "But when someone in a high position or educated person gets in trouble, they get condemned."

Nugent said he called Boeff to confirm that he sent the letter.

"I am offended he would call persons that aren't as rich or may not have had the same opportunities Brother Paul Botty had in life the lowest scum bags and degenerates," Nugent said. "It's hard for me to believe he could feel that way about the people he's supposed to be helping."

Boeff said in an interview that he wrote the letter because he became angry after speaking with Botty, who pleaded guilty to four felony charges stemming from the sexual assaults.
