Was he sentenced?

Share Button

Father Daniel Moreau was scheduled to be sentenced yesterday in the Sorel-Tracy Quebec courthouse.

Father Moreau was arrested early March 2013.  On 17 February 2017 he entered a guilty plea to  charges related to  possession, distribution and production of child pornography.

Can anyone find any coverage on the outcome of his sentencing?  Was he actually sentenced, or was it just the sentencing hearing with sentencing to come at a later date?


More clerical sex abuse allegations in Guam:

22 May 2017:  “Father Jack Niland is 12th Guam priest accused in latest sex abuse lawsuit” & related article

Twelve accused is a lot.  With a population of between 160, 000 and 170,000,  85% of whom are Roman Catholic, 12 accused is a huge number.


A reminder that there are two court dates tomorrow:

(1) Father Brian Boucher (Archdiocese of Montreal, Quebec)

Father Boucher was charged 03 May 2017 with a number of counts of sexual assault and sexual touching related to the allegations of three complainants.  He is also facing a charge of breaking and entering.

His next court date is:

Wednesday, 25 May 2017:  09:00 am, Montreal courthouse, (1 Notre-Dame St E, Montreal )

I encourage those who can do so to attend.

Please keep the complainants in your prayers,

(2)  Father Amer Saka (Priest with Chaldean Catholic Church in Canada)

Father Saka was charged 13 July 2016 with fraud over $5,000 and possessing proceeds of property or thing exceeding $5,000.  The charges relate at least in part to allegations that Father Saka gambled away funds for refugees.   Police will say only that the total sum of money ‘lost’ was in excess of $500,000.

Father Saka’s next court date is:

Wednesday, 25 May  2017:  09:30 am, “to be spoken to,” courtroom #5,  London Ontario courthouse ( 80 Dundas St.)

I encourage those who can do so to attend.


Days are busy busy busy.  Hoping to get on top of things this week 🙂

Enough for now,

    More on Father Moreau’s sentencing:

    He cannot be in a public place where he’s likely to be in the presence of children; to hold a job where he would have authority over children and he may only use Internet for work purposes only. One media is reporting that Father Moreau will resign the priesthood following this sentence while another newspaper is reporting that there will be a canonical trial regarding Father Moreau.

    Thank you for all the info BC. Greatly appreciated by all.

    The google translation of the article along with original French is now posted:

    23 May 2017: “Prison for the parish priest Daniel Moreau” & original French text.

    That’s interesting re canonical trial and so on. It sounds as though the issue of defrocking/laicizing is more of a thought than usual. That’s good news. He’s another one who doesn’t belong int he priesthood.
