OH- Ohio priest says abuse charges filed too late, SNAP responds
A Cincinnati priest is pleading not guilty to abusing a 10-year-old boy and is seeking to exploit a legal technicality, claiming that the charges against him have been filed too late.
Fr. Robert Poandl is accused of molesting a boy in 1991. He belongs to a religious order called the Glenmary Home Missioners
We believe that all victims are entitled to a fair legal process regardless of when the abuse occurred. It takes courage and often many years for victims to report crimes that are committed against them at a young age.
We urge the court to consider Fr. Poandl’s crime as what it was, the horrific sexual abuse of a child, regardless of when it happened. We also urge any witnesses or victims to come forward.
