And it’s back to jail for ex-priest Donald Grecco:
24 October 2017: Ex-priest Grecco gets 18 months in prison
This para caught me:
Several times during his Tuesday ruling, Nadel said he “regretted” that he wasn’t giving Grecco a longer sentence. The judge said Grecco pleaded guilty on the understanding that he would receive an 18-month sentence, and that guilty plea saved the community time and money that would have been consumed at a trial.
Perhaps I’m not the only one who has difficult with these plea bargains?
I wonder though why the Crown asked for three years if the deal had been 18 months in exchange for the guilty plea?
During a sentencing hearing last month, Grecco’s lawyer Robert Yanch asked for an 18-month sentence while assistant Crown attorney Pat Vadacchino asked Nadel to put the ex-priest behind bars for three years
No matter, it’s done. He’s off to jail again for a few months.
I commend the victims for coming forward. Well William. Well done all of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Enough for now,
