Pedo Priest Once Again Released From Prison Amidst Vatican Scandal
April 24, 2010
Gauthe caused mass shock around the world long before the current scandal to hit the Vatican, after it became clear that he had been using his position in the church to abuse as many as 100 children.
The 64-year-old was released from prisoin formerly, and then arrested for yet another case of sexual contact with a child.
This latest arrest, for which he served two years, was for attempting to circumvent the system by failing to register a new address in the registry.
And now he is back, living in Santa Fe, Texas, according to his sex offender registry. Right next door to a woman who babysits her six young grandchildren every week.
His release has caused mass outrage, as many question why a man who sexually violated over 100 children, and then was released to do it again, would ever be put back on the streets a third time.
