AZ - Case against abusive priest in Phoenix proceeds slowly

We hope that the records request that is holding up the case against Fr. Jack Spaulding will be over soon and Mr. Pain will get the chance to have his day in court. Two and a half years is a long time to wait.

We also hope that the action taken in this case by Vatican officials will be decisive, punitive, and serve as a deterrent to future child sex crimes and cover-ups. Spaulding’s abuse of at least four kids is a horrible crime and must be treated by church officials as such. If the new pope is to live up to his words to “act with determination” in child sex crimes, he must act on Fr.
