    MA - John Geoghan, 68, former priest, killed in prison, Shirley, 23 Aug 2003

    The mother of the inmate accused in the slammer-slaying of pedophile priest John Geoghan loves her son and is helping him build a Web site to educate the public about child molesters.

    Though Joseph Druce swallowed several feet of thin, plastic-coated TV cable in his Cedar Junction cell on Oct. 15, Donna Gauthier insists her first born ``does not have a death wish,'' but rather felt in ``imminent danger'' from fellow cons, as well as correction officers. He saw the wiring as his ticket out.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    From January 2006:

    http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/...-geoghan_x.htm

    The inmate who strangled child-molesting priest John Geoghan was convicted of murder Wednesday after failing to convince a jury he was delusional when he killed one of the central figures in the Boston Archdiocese sex scandal.

    Joseph Druce, 40, was given a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole...

    At the time of the slaying, Geoghan was serving up to 10 years in prison for fondling a 10-year-old boy, but was accused in lawsuits of molesting some 150 youngsters. His case helped spark the clergy sex abuse scandal in the Roman Catholic Church after records released under court order revealed that the archdiocese transferred Geoghan from parish to parish despite the allegations against him.
