Priest found not guilty of abuse; reflects on “the darkest two years” of his life


“The popular priest was eventually ripped from the ministry he so loved and forced to withstand screaming front-page headlines about his case, aggressive police tactics, and a high-profile criminal trial.”

“When the jury returned the unanimous ‘not guilty’ verdicts, the priest could not have been more ecstatic. ‘I could have skipped down the street outside the courthouse. There was an overwhelming feeling of relief – that I had been heard and I had been vindicated.’”
