    MA - Pastor Of Spiritualist Church Gets 84 Months For Child Pornography

    Teacher, Pastor, Medium. That's Simeon Stefanidakis.

    He also posessed over 10,000 images of child pornography. That gives him 84 months to contemplate in jail.

    Another man in a trusted position.

    Facebook.

    He says in his job description: You name it. I did it. Plus some.

    Let's hope there's not more Pastor Reverend Medium Stefanidakis.

    Oh boy he's been all over the world. Helps with Journey Of The Soul. He'll sit with you for some loot that goes to support the Church. Him being a medium and all.

    Forgive me, but how does that work? Is there another medium that would tell us this guy had 10,000 images of sadistic child pornography on his computer?

    Skeery. Sad. Horrible.

    Lots of education though so he says. Looks like he still belongs to the Church.

    Yeahhhh, I bet he did
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Does this not give you the cold shivers? Where in heck does LE start?

    "Rev. Simeon Stefanidakis has worked as a minister, teacher, counselor, and medium at the First Spiritual Temple since March, 1977. His years of research, study, and experience have made him an authority in his field.

    Rev. Simeon is a scholar in Thanatology, Religious Science, Theosophy, Spiritualism, and Parapsychology. He has also studied Judaic-Christian spirituality. He has authored many publications and articles, including: a 51-lesson course of study and experience on The Journey of the Soul; a guide to Spiritualism; and a comprehensive text/study guide on Mediumship and Channeling.

    Rev. Simeon has taught, lectured and demonstrated mediumship for some of the most prestigious organizations in the United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, and the United States; including the London Spiritual Mission, the Spiritualist Association of Great Britain, Lynwood Fellowship, Cawston College, United Kingdom, the Institute of Spiritualist Mediums, the Edinburgh Spiritual Society, and Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship. He has also served several churches in the United States and England..."

    and

    "...For those unable to come to Brookline, Rev. Simeon conducts -- on a limited basis -- taped sittings. Please contact him for information on this. Rev. Simeon does not do phone sittings...."

    ".....The former minister of a spiritualist church in Old Greenwich who "meticulously organized" thousands of pictures and videos of child pornography -- which included toddlers and infants....."

    and

    ".....He will begin serving his sentence March 16..."

    and

    "....Stefanidakis is currently living with a friend in Cape Cod, Mass. He remains under his previous release conditions that include no use of the Internet and no association with anyone under the age of 18 unless he is supervised, Sterling said.

    "He did make a statement to the court and he did express remorse," Sterling said. The prosecution painted a picture of a man who "meticulously organized his child pornography files in numerous digital folders and subfolders that he created and named," according to the prosecution's sentencing submission. That reflected the extensive time he spent viewing and tending to his collection of child pornography, the prosecution said.

    "This was not a small part of his life," the sentence submission states. "Defendant's collection of child pornography is also distinguished from that of many other offenders in that he specifically collected images and videos depicting the rape and molestation of infants and toddlers...."

    The guy is living on Cape Cod. I'm just certain as can be that he's following his restrictions. Why, he even made a statement and expressed remorse. He's a gem. He's allowed to check in when it's convenient. I guess he needs to tidy up his files. And he specialized in collecting rape photos of infants!!!!! WTH??? And we all believe he'll be front and center at the gate on March 16?

    ~ Suggested fee for a 45-50 minute sitting is $75 ~
    ($25 of proceeds go to helping fund the Church)

    If you would like to stop by and say "hello" or talk, Rev. Simeon's open office hours are:

    Wednesday Afternoon: 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
    Thursday Morning: 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM.
    Thursday Evening: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (except for the THIRD Thursday of each month).



    Maybe the third Thursday was file organization night. I wonder if he also sold sittings on ebay?

    The FBI press release made it quite clear as to what sentence this guy was looking at. Sadly, that sure didn't come to pass:

    http://boston.fbi.gov/dojpressrel/pr...0/bs061510.htm

    "....If convicted on these charges, STEFANIDAKIS faces up to 20 years' imprisonment on each count of transportation of child pornography, and up to 10 years' imprisonment on the possession of child pornography; both would be followed by up to a lifetime of supervised release and up to a $250,000 fine."

    So, instead:

    http://www.greenwichtime.com/local/a...#ixzz1DdLJ4oJK

    "....Stefanidakis pleaded guilty Nov. 10 in U.S. District Court in Boston. He was indicted on June 15, 2010, on four counts of transportation of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography...."

    and

    "....will also be subject to five years of supervised release after his [84 month] prison sentence ends.
