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.

    PS. I responded months ago to this posting, and it should be made clear that Renald Hallee is no longer, and has NOT been a priest for more than 30 years, as he was kicked out of the priesthood in the mid 1970’s when he was having an affair with my 15 year old sister. However, he has been involved with his local parish in Billerica, MA, where he lives with his family. Referring to him as “Fr. Renald C. Hallee” is incorrect, since he is no longer a priest.
