Three court dates this week:
(1) Previously convicted Oblate molester Father Omer Desjardins has a court date in Winnipeg tomorrow:
Monday, 04 December 2017: 10 am, to enter a plea, court room #303, Winnipeg Provincial courthouse (Main Floor, 408 York Ave.)
I encourage those who can do so to attend.
Please keep the complainants in your prayers, and, as always, please pass along any news you see or hear regarding the outcome.
(Father Desjardins is also facing charges in his home province of Saskatchewan. This past October two charges of gross decency and two of indecent assault on a male person were laid against him laid in relation to allegations of sex abuse in Saskatoon and Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan dating to in 1974-1975. I have been trying to find out in which court these charges were laid. I will try again tomorrow)
(2) Sentencing for previously convicted molester Father George Ansel Smith is scheduled for Tuesday:
Tuesday, 05 December 2017: 1:30 pm, Sentencing, Corner Brook, Newfoundland courthouse (82 Mt. Bernard Avenue)
I encourage those who are within driving distance and free to do so to attend. From Michelle’s description of events last week I believe chances are high that Father Smith will be in court in person. Paul Renouf, whose allegations led to this conviction, will listen to the proceeding by phone.
Please keep Paul in your prayers.
(3) The verdict for previously convicted former Cornwall Roman Catholic school teacher Marcel Lalonde molester will be rendered on Wednesday:
Wednesday, 06 December 2017: 10 am, VERDICT, Cornwall, Ontario courthouse (29 Second St. W., )
As always, I encourage those who can do so to attend.
Please keep the complainant in your prayers.
Enough for now,
