He was never convicted of the charges, and he now lives in a doublewide mobile home in a quiet neighborhood within two miles of a youth sports complex, a library, two day care centers and at least two elementary schools. Sutphin admits he molested children as a priest, but his name doesn’t show up in a sex offender database because the charges were dismissed because too much time had elapsed.

Mind boggling… big surprise

On the plus side, at least we know where he is.  Unlike the thousands of homeless yet registered sex offenders that can’t be tracked.

More bad new for the Catholic Church:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110307/us_nm/us_priest_abuse

Attorneys on Monday said they were filing suit accusing a priest of sexual abuse and the former head of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia of failing to stop the abuse.
Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, now retired from the Philadelphia Archdiocese, knew of earlier sexual misconduct by the accused priest, said lawyer Marci Hamilton, one of the attorneys filing the lawsuit.

and ...

A Philadelphia grand jury recently said as many as 37 priests remain in active ministry despite solid and credible allegations of sexual abuse.

Every time I think I am beyond astonishment at the depravity of the Catholic Church I find I am wrong. This is sickening.

PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia archdiocese suspended 21 Roman Catholic priests Tuesday who were named as child molestation suspects in a scathing grand jury report released last month. The priests have been removed from ministry while their cases are reviewed, Cardinal Justin Rigali said. The names of the priests were not being released, a spokesman for the archdiocese said.

The grand jury named 37 priests who remained in active ministry despite credible allegations of sexual abuse. After the release of the report, the second such investigation in the city in six years, Rigali vowed to take its calls for further reforms seriously.

While the archdiocese formed a panel to handle abuse complaints after the 2005 report, the 2011 grand jury found it mostly worked to protect the church, not the victims.

On tonight’s local news the Buffalo diocese announcing the names of a number of priests being suspended for suspected child abuse.  On Ash Wensday no less.

However it appears the diocese not the police are doing the investigating!

Glad they are releasing the names, but the fact that the diocese is controling the investigation is pure bulls**t. Next time I am stopped for speeding, I will tell the police officer that my parents will do the investigation for them.. mad
