A former Catholic priest and registered sex offender, now living in the Peoria diocese, has been accused of practicing psychology without a license. He also faces charges that he failed to register as a sex offender, as required by law.
We hope that Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky will use his resources to warn his flock about Benham. It's clear that he's still manipulative and dangerous. And we hope anyone who saw, suspected or suffered wrongdoing by Benham will contact law enforcement immediately. That's the best way to safeguard the vulnerable from this sick and cunning man.
