Priest Molested Student

By Kathy Coulombe

Another Catholic priest having with trouble his vow of celibacy: 70-year-old "Father" Denis Tremblay of south-shore Ste-Martine, near Chateauguay has pleaded guilty to 3 counts of sexually-touching a 56-year-old man he was tutoring.

On a joint recommendation by the Crown and the defense, the judge sentenced Tremblay to house-arrest for the next 6 months, and ordered him to abide by a curfew for the following 6 months.

No word on whether the Roman Catholic Church will see fit to impose sanctions as well.
