Mother Of Accused Seminary Student: 'He's Innocent'
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Joel Wright appeared on a Vermont CBS affiliate WCAX not once but twice, at 16-years-old and 13-years-old; both times he was excited about a planned trip to a papal mass.
It was a sharp contrast to the 23-year-old seminary student who appeared in federal court on Monday on two felony charges for allegedly planning a trip to Tijuana, Mexico to adopt a 1-year-old and 4-year-old child for the purpose of raping and molesting.
Homeland Security Agents arrested Joel Wright Friday morning in San Diego between connecting flights from California to Mexico.
Speaking to 10TV from the Vermont home where she raised Wright, his mom Teresa Poquette says her son was set up. “He didn’t do it. He’s innocent. I still do not believe it’s true,” she said.
