LOUIS — A St. Louis priest was sentenced Thursday to nearly seven years in prison for possessing child pornography, and an effort to remove him as a priest is under way. U.S. District Judge Jean Hamilton sentenced James Patrick Grady to 80 months in prison, fined him $12,500 and banned him from areas like parks and schools where children gather, except with special permission. Grady, who pleaded guilty in March, must also forfeit property, including his laptop computer and his Toyota Camry...." and "....Grady, 59, was a longtime priest in the archdiocese. Last summer, he was serving at St. Raphael The Archangel in St. Louis when prosecutors say he responded to ads on Craigslist offering young females of an unspecified age for sex. In fact, the ads were part of an FBI sting operation...." more at link It's interesting that Grady attempted to buy a young girl for sex and yet they cut him a deal and allowed him to plead only to the porn charges. Maybe they were concerned with the possibility of losing the trial due to an entrapment argument. Am I the only one bothered by the fact that they even have to mention that they took his laptop and Camry? As if that's of importance? For whatever reason, he's off the streets for now and probably won't ever again serve as a priest. But he's out in only 80 months. Like he's going to stop? What's to keep him from "playing the part" in another state or country? I wish his restrictions included never again wearing priestly garb. I'm sure my buddy, kbl, will need to comment on this one!!
