Priest Sentenced

Wisconsin State Journal
March 4, 1994

A judge sentenced to 12 years in prison a Catholic priest convicted for a second time within six years of sexually molesting a boy.

Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Wagner also ordered Wednesday that the Rev. Dennis A. Pecore, 43, spend 10 years on probation after being released from prison.

"I know that Father Pecore has done some tremendous things for the community," the judge said. "But sometimes good people do bad things and you, sir, have done some horrific things."
