Former Priest Sentenced to 16 Years, SNAP Responds

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

May 24, 2019

We are glad that a jury has sentenced Fr. Ronald H. Paquin to sixteen years in prison. Hopefully this sentence will keep a serial predator away from vulnerable children for the rest of his life.

Now that Fr. Paquin has been sentenced, we hope that police and prosecutors will turn their attention to those who enabled Fr. Paquin’s crimes. The only way that we can ensure that institutions like the church are safer for children and vulnerable adults is by exposing and prosecuting everyone who had a hand in child sex crimes.
