    SAN ANTONIO - Authorities say a former Roman Catholic priest charged with sexually abusing a teenage boy in rural Texas is now accused of plotting the teen's murder.

    A spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety says 52-year-old John Fiala was arrested at his suburban Dallas home after meeting with an undercover officer to arrange for the teen's death.

    Boy that priest has truly abandoned everything he previously stood for. Thank goodness for the sting.

    This is despicable! I didn't use to follow crime stories much, but I've never heard of a MFH plot to kill a teen.

    He didn't abandon anything.
    This is who he truly is.
    He just let his mask slip.
    He never believed any of the things he hid behind.

    Moo of course

    CNN has a rather lengthy take on the matter:
    Police: Priest solicited murder of boy accusing him of sex abuse
    ---
    The youth met [Father] Fiala in 2007, according to [the teen's attorney, Tom] Rhodes. The attorney said the priest started "grooming him," buying him gifts including a computer and a car. In early 2008, when the boy was 16, under the guise of providing private catechism lessons, Fiala "gained access to him and began to sexually abuse him once or twice a month, including on church grounds," Rhodes said.
    ---
    "This guy," Edwards County Sheriff Don Letsinger said, "is an evil man."
    ---
    "I think he's cooked his goose now," Letsinger said of Fiala. "We know that pedophiles sometimes threaten their victims to keep them quiet. But this is kind of an older victim, and you wonder sometimes why they wouldn't come forward. ... I can see now the evil in this guy is pretty bad."

    Am I the only one who finds it more than a bit disturbing that the LE is naive to what's out there running loose?

    If I don't post within 3 days, please follow up. ;)

    I agree with you 100%. It's just so chilling to think this man went to such great lengths to accomplish his evil. We can never forget there are monsters among us and they will do anything in their power to harm our babies.

    Of course he did. How many thousands of cases of children abused by pedophile priests are there nationally, internationally, where the priests are never are prosecuted for anything?
