Maine’s Highest Court Lets Pedophile Priest Case Go Forward

In a new ruling, Maine’s highest court is letting a child sex abuse victim expose a predator priest in the court. The case involves Fr. Renald C. Hallee, who was found, just last year, working in a Boston-area Catholic church, despite the pending court case against him.

We applaud Christine Angell for her courage and persistence in seeking justice and exposing wrong-doing. If not for her brave and responsible actions, Fr. Hallee would still be working in a Catholic parish among unsuspecting families and perhaps still sexually assaulting kids.

And we applaud the Maine judges who are now part of a gradual trend in the US judiciary toward giving child sex abuse victims more opportunities to be heard and to protect others from child predators.
