I’m home 🙂 A good trip, and great time with family, but oh my it’s cold back here in Canada!! The leaves are beautiful, but it’s freezing 🙁
I have just posted an article from the Father Yvon Arsenault 11th hour guilty plea:
26 October 2016: Former NB priest pleads guilty to sexual abuse
Look at that picture! Just look at him! The SMILE!
This is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who spent how many of years of his priesthood molesting boys? and probably the bulk of his years as a priest betraying his flock while committing sacrilege after sacrilege after sacrilege? and after a years of ‘getting away with it’ spent three long years trying to make his victims look like outright liars while he denied the charges?
He has no shame.
Note that in the plea bargaining process 11 charges disappeared. Swoosh! Gone. Ten charges gone. That’s a lot. Perhaps that’s why he’s smiling? That truly is a cause for a clerical molester to rejoice, is it not? Nine, after all, sounds so much better than 19.
But watch. The fact that he entered a guilty plea before trial will probably be presented as a badge of honour at sentencing. Even if 1o charges disappeared en route, there will be kudos for the guilty plea.
Anyway, for the time being this clerical molester is out and about on “humanitarian reasons, ” presumably making arrangements for some unfortunate soul with special needs who has been reliant on him for care?
He’s back in court 24 February 2017 for a sentencing hearing.
I am relieved to see that every victim who wishes to do so will have opportunity to present his victim impact statement in person.
Please keep the victims in your prayers.
(I am curious. I will check tomorrow to see if the trial in the Miramich is still tentatively booked for 21-24 February 2017.)
Enough for now,
