ON- Former principal pleads guilty to child pornography
Statement by Barbara Dorris, Outreach Director, 314-862-7688 SNAPdorris@gmail.com
A former Niagara Falls principal and priest at a Catholic high school has been convicted of possession of child pornography. After pleading guilty, Rheal LeBlanc was sentenced to 14 days in jail to be carried out on the weekends.
This punishment is unfit for this heinous crime. Child pornography is often an indication of larger, more threatening issues. A full investigation into his history must take place in order to insure that LeBlanc is not a threat to children.
We urge officials at Saint Paul High School, Holy Cross Fathers, and Notre Dame College School to reach out to alumni and members asking for anyone to come forward with information regarding inappropriate actions by LeBlanc. We hope that others will report what they know to the police in order to prevent this man from getting away with a minor punishment for a major crime.
