OH - Student advisor sentenced to one year in prison, SNAP responds
A Cincinnati judge has sentenced a student advisor to one year in prison after he pled guilty to molesting at least two boys at a school for the deaf.
We are glad that the judge in this case decided that, rather allowing an admitted child molester to freely walk the streets, children would be safer with this predator behind bars. By giving Josh Bort prison time instead of simply allowing him to get off with probation, the judge is sending a harsh and clear message that child abuse will not be tolerated.
We applaud the victims in this case for speaking out against Bort and exposing his crimes. School officials at St. Rita’s should immediately seek out others who Bort may have hurt. Now that Bort is behind bars, perhaps those who were too afraid to come forward earlier will find the strength and courage to break their silence.
