Oh- Ohio Priest Indicted for West Virginia Child Sex Crimes

We are grateful to this brave victim for cooperating with law enforcement authorities and trying to protect other kids from horrific child sex crimes by this predator priest.
Fr. Poandl is a shrewd child molester. But even cunning criminals are sometimes caught.
Still, this is not the time for complacency. Accused Catholic clerics usually get top notch defense lawyers. Sometimes, they walk free by exploiting legal technicalities. And sometimes, they get lenient sentences because other victims, witnesses and whistleblowers stay silent.
So we beg anyone who saw, suspected or suffered Fr. Poandl's crimes to speak up, get help, call police, expose wrongdoing, protect kids and start healing.
