TN--More desperate moves by convicted predator priest
For immediate release: Friday, Nov. 6, 2015
A convicted ex-priest charges that his lawyers were inept, prosecutors committed misconduct, and that both a judge and a district attorney’s office should be removed from his case and he deserves another trial.
Give me a break. More important, give the predator’s brave victim, Warren Tucker, a break.
We believe in due process. But we also believe that victims of horrific child sex crimes deserve some closure. Enough is enough.
It’s been almost seven years since Warren reported to law enforcement his suffering due to sexual abuse by Casey. Still William Casey continues his increasingly desperate legal maneuvers.
We urge Knoxville Bishop Richard Stika to publicly denounce Casey’s hurtful legal shenanigans. And we hope that not a single victim of a single child sex crime by a single child molester is deterred from coming forward because Casey is making a mockery of our justice system.

Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers.
