Victims Beg Judge: Keep Predator Priest Locked up
June 12, 2014
We beg a Louisville judge to keep a convicted predator priest behind bars and away from kids while he appeals.
Dozens of times, we've seen savvy pedophiles fake or exaggerate illnesses to get special treatment. And hundreds of times, we've seen elderly, greying, slow-moving, stoop-shouldered but cunning clerics win parents' trust and hurt kids even though they look and seem utterly harmless. It's reckless to assume that older or ill child molesters can't or won't hurt kids. These are compulsive, driven men who can rarely control themselves, even if they are sick.
We hope this judge will put the safety of innocent kids before the convenience of a convicted criminal.
