Just Wow.

This is pretty sick.  I know most of my posts recently have been bashing the Catholic Church, but if they'd stop doing nasty things I'd have less to say.

 

So a priest molests a woman he's giving Last Rights to.  He faces one year in jail and up to $4000 in fines.  Shouldn't they add elder abuse to that to get a lengthier sentence?  The punishment definitely doesn't seem to fit the crime.

 

Anyway, here's the article:

Dunno the legal intricacies, especially not those of US laws, but over here he'd easily be accused for not just sexual assault but (my translation - our terms here are a bit *cough cough* outdated) the crimes of fornication with dependents, and fornication with those who should have been under his protection. Don't know how all that would turn out in the end but these would in all likelihood push his punishment up quite a few notches on top of the molestation itself.

 

If the claims are roughly correct I'd think he deserved to be hit with quite  a bit more.
