Not, alas, for stonewalling on predator priests, but hey...

Phoenix bishop arrested in a fatal hit-and-run accident

quote:
Earlier this month, it was announced that O'Brien relinquished some of his authority in an unprecedented agreement with prosecutors that spared him from indictment on obstruction charges for protecting child-molesting priests.

In the agreement with prosecutors earlier this month, O'Brien admitted that he allowed priests to work with minors after he knew of sexual misconduct allegations against them and that he transferred them to ministries without telling their new supervisors.

Meet Thomas O'Brien.

quote:
O'Brien is no stranger to criminal investigators. Last month, in a deal to avoid indictment on obstruction charges, the bishop publicly admitted that he had concealed numerous instances of sexual misconduct by priests against minors. He also acknowledged that he transferred predatory priests from church to church without disclosing their tainted history to parishioners. O'Brien, released on $45,000 bond, faces a June 25 preliminary hearing in the hit and run case.
