A 50-year-old Catholic priest who is a Cohoes native now living in Columbia County could be released on bond as early as today after a federal magistrate on Wednesday agreed to grant the accused bail as he awaits trial on charges he received and possessed computer images of child pornography.
Ahh, swift Justice, swoop in and take the alleged pervert. But wait..
[Prosecutor Thomas Spina] said Ethier faces five to 20 years in prison if convicted, but the criminal process will be delayed by medical treatment the priest will seek in Maryland.
Medical Treatment in Maryland, you say? Wouldn't happen to be St. Luke Institute, by chance?
I still think my monastery idea would be worth looking into.
