Convicted Predators Seek New Trial, SNAP Responds
August 28, 2014
A Pennsylvania priest and Catholic teacher, who were convicted of sexually abusing a child, are seeking a new trial. We hope they do not succeed.
Attorneys for Bernard Shero and Fr. Charles Engelhardt have filed for a new trail using a legal technicality by claiming prosecutor misconduct. It is a shame when child molesters and their attorneys try and exploit every possible legal loophole.
Engelhardt and Shero were found guilty of sexually assaulting a man when he was a child. During their initial trial Engelhardt and Shero tried to avoid justice by claiming the victim was not credible. We are glad their hurtful and malicious legal tactic did not work then and we hope it does not work now.
