Noted! They wonder why people don't have faith in priests, ministers, etc. They preach one thing & do another. Then the boys get them off.

Add him to the never-ending list. And the Pope has the audacity call all those who are not of his faith the ones who are going to Hell in a handbasket.

These old cases are very difficult to prove in a criminal court. Still, they must have found him guilty of something if he's heading to jail - so this sentence is a insult. Molesters are at the bottom of the food chain in jail, so at least he'll be miserable the whole time.

I'm not surprised about the 60-day jail sentence. This is a lot like that one case last year-ish in Vermont where the judge, who believed in rehabilitation rather than punishment, gave a guy a 60-day jail sentence after he repeatedly raped a little girl for several years.

Still, a 60-day jail sentence is ridiculous and a slap in the face to the victim.
