    NOTE:" In my opinion, this case, warranted 'SUMMARY JUDGEMENT'(or at the least, been 'REMANDED'), for the simple fact, there should NOT have been allotment for the defendant, because he was and it shows, that he was already prepared to use this defense to AVOID prosecution in this case, pass cases(if any) and futher cases.

    This is NOT surprising to I, because it was already CLEAR, that sexual abuse, had already been taking place in this "dormain".

    Possible Co-defendants in such cases, has had YEARS, to study and munilplate such cases for years and it is HIGH TIME, that they are prosecuted for their 'hidden' crimes, for it is totally DISrespectful when because a person is connected to the Archdiocese, they should get away with RAPE.
