A busy month in the offing. I got an update on court dates yesterday so will list those first and then follow with other court dates scheduled for this month. I am unable at this time to link all names to their respective pages. I will keep trying: The links are added and, thanks to my webhost, everything is working 🙂
(1) ALLEN: Father William Allen (Father Bill)
11 February 2011: Allen’s next court date is 11 February 2011 “to take a plea.” Ottawa courthouse, 9 am courtroom, #7
Courtroom #7 is reserved for motions and guilty pleas. Does this mean there MAY be a guilty plea in the offing?
Allen is a priest with the Archdiocese of Ottawa. he was charged 12 July 2010.
(2) BAZIN: Father Roger Bazin
CHARGES WITHDRAWN. Former military Chaplain General and retired Brigadier General Bazin’s charges were withdrawn 22 December 2010. I will try to find out more on this tomorrow.
Some may recall that the buggery charge against Bazin was eventually dropped and that staff at Xtra, Canada’s gay and lesbian paper were extremely upset that Bazin was charged with buggery in the first place.
Bottom line: The ten charges which Bazin originally faced have disappeared. Poof! Gone!!
(3) GRECCO: Donald Grecco
19 January 2011: Ex priest and convicted child molester Don Grecco has unfinished business with regard to his breach of residency charge. Grecco has a court date set for 19 January 2011 in Picton, Ontario

My thoughts and prayers are with all those who anxiously watch court dates come and go, and with those whose sex abuse allegations are scheduled to be dealt with at trial this month
Enough for now,
