More court news:
(1) Brian Lucy (former organist in Archdiocese of Kingston Ontario)
The next court-date for convicted and currently incarcerated child molester Brian Lucy on his new set of charges is:
06 May 2016: 09:00 am, “to be spoken to,” Brockville Ontario courthouse (41 Court House Square)
Please keep the complainant in your prayers.
(2) Father Linus Bastien (Diocese of London, Ontario)
This gets more disgusting by the moment. It is unconscionable.
The latest news on Father Bastien is that he has a three-day ‘fitness hearing” scheduled in May to, yes, determine his fitness to stand trial:
24 -26May 2016: 10 am, fitness hearing set for three days, Windsor Superior Court of Justice (245 Windsor Avenue)
Court dates have been set for trial. That means that if Father Bastien is deemed fit to stand trial the dates have been set aside – for October through December of this year.
Here are the trial dates:
07-12 November, 2016
14-16 December, 2016
Remember, the first set of charges were laid in October 2011. Yes, 2011!
I urge those of you in Windsor and surrounding area to mark your calendars and do your very best to attend this ‘fitness hearing.’ Please please try to make a point of getting there. We really do need to know what arguments are being pulled out of the defence’s bag of tricks at the 11th hour, and how strongly the Crown is fighting to proceed.
I am sick! Why has this been allowed to drag on and on and on for all of the years, and now, at the 11th hour, the big showdown over his ‘fitness’ to stand trial?
Please keep the complainants and their families in your prayers.
(3) Father Gary Hoskins (Diocese of Saint George’s, Newfoundland/Diocese of Corner Brook and Labarador)
Previously convicted molester Father Gary Hoskins had a court-date in Corner Brook Newfoundland today, and application related to his pending trial. The trial is already booked for two days:
25 – 26 April 2016: 10 am, TRIAL, Corner Brook Superior Court (81 Mt. Bernard Avenue.)
These new charges were laid 25 February 2013. Yes, that’s three long three years ago.
I will check with the court tomorrow to ensure the trial dates still stand.
Please keep the complainants in your prayers.
Hallelujah. The water issue in the basement is resolved, at least for now 🙂 I will tell landlord re Tom’s suggestion about about flushing the inlet to the sump pump. It makes sense, and certainly worth a try.
Mild weather and light rain. Feeling like Spring 🙂
Enough for now,
