He’s out tomorrow

Ex priest and convicted molester Gabriel Del Bianco will be released from jail tomorrow (Thursday, 12 January 2017):  He will return to his home in Kincardin.

On 14 May 2014 DelBianco – convicted for sexual abuse of two girls in the 1980s and early 1990s – was sentenced to four years in prison.

Only months later, in August 2014,  we had word from  Amber that DelBianco had been relocated to the Pittsburg Institution,  a “a minimum security facility”  on the grounds Joyceville, Ontario.

And, here we are.  January 2017.   DelBianco has ‘served’ 32 of a 48 month sentence – served as in three months in prison, and the remaining 29 months in what some dub  “the Hilton Hotel” of the prison world.

Sadly, this is not at all unusual in this country. Most convicted offenders are out after serving two-thirds of their sentence.

And so, tomorrow DelBianco is heading home.

Please keep DelBianco’s victims in your prayers.

Has anyone heard news of the outcome of the Father Barry McGrory Ottawa court appearance this morning?

Enough for now,

    I have been to Pittsburgh Institution, as I have to most of the pens in Ontario, in a previous life when I did work for part of the CSC.

    I understand why some would think it lenient. Compared to supermaxes or even places like Collins Bay, it is not nearly as restrictive. But it is by no means a hotel. A prison is a prison. I am surprised he’s been able to be housed in a minimum, frankly. People with those sorts of convictions tend to need higher security for their own safety.

    My sympathies are with those he and others abused; however, any prison system will have institutions with degrees of privilege and constraint. It’s a necessity to bring offenders back into the community, and to provide offenders with an incentive for good behaviour.

    No disrespect intended to those who have been abused by anyone inside of religion or outside.
