We've very worried that this convicted serial child predator is being released so quickly and will soon again be around unsuspecting families.
For decades, most Catholic bishops have assured their flocks they “take child sex abuse seriously” and “act promptly” on reports or suspicions of abuse. So it’s disconcerting that only now Kansas City church officials are claiming they’re starting to “look into suspicions of abuse.”
Whenever a lawmaker stiffens penalties against child predators, our children are safer from abuse. We applaud Senate Majority Whip Mary Jane Garcia's tough new criminal bills and hope that other lawmakers in the state follow her lead.
This morning, a Philadelphia judge ruled again that retired Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua will testify in the upcoming clergy sex abuse and cover up trial involving Msgr. Lynn.
One of the most notorious serial child molesting Catholic clerics in California history has apparently been jailed in Ireland for child porn.
The Alabama parole board tomorrow will consider paroling a serial child predator, Charles Donald Corley, who manipulated and assaulted children through both a Boy Scout troop and a Methodist church. The board should err on the side of the safety of kids and keep Corley behind bars.
Victims respond: Former JSerra teacher charged with seven counts of unlawful sex acts with 14-year-old
We applaud the Orange County Sheriff's Department and the District Attorney's Office for their diligent investigation of Ricardo Aldana's alleged crimes. We sincerely hope that the criminal justice system works for the victim in this case and that the complete truth about Aldana and his actions is made public. That is the only way to keep children safe right now.
Church officials have allegedly reformed, right? Then explain this: For decades, when a priest from diocese “A” was accused or suspended or arrested or charged or convicted in diocese “B”, rarely (if ever) did Bishop “A” disclose the news to his flock.
We ache for the victim or victims of this priest. We also ache for KC Catholics who have been reeling for almost a year from a seemingly never-ending stream of revelations, accusations, lawsuits and criminal investigations into church officials.
Let’s hope Fr. Boudreau is put behind bars for a long time so no more kids are hurt. Let’s also hope that others who saw, suspected or suffered his crimes will step forward, get help, expose wrongdoers and start healing.
