Justice is possible

Father James Patrick Grady, 58, of St. Louis’ St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church plead guilty this Wednesday to possession of child pornography and soliciting sex from a 16-year-old girl (17 being the age of consent in Missouri).

Father Jacques Gaimard, director of a Christian radio station in the northern region of Upper Normandy, has been charged for two sexual assaults he committed in 1992 and 1993, and another French priest, Father Philippe Richir, is being interviewed by authorities for suspicion of possession of child pornography. Both men have been suspended from the priesthood.

In Ontario, the defrocked priest John Duarte has been sentenced to (a bafflingly short) 18 months imprisonment for at least nine sexual assaults committed against boys at the mission he founded in Haiti.
