BSO- A Catholic priest from California was found guilty Friday of sexually assaulting a sleeping woman aboard a U.S. Airways flight.
Father Marcelo De Jesumaria was convicted of abusive sexual contact by a federal jury in a three-day trial after a female passenger woke up to find his “hands on her breast, groin and buttocks” in August, NBC Los Angeles reported.
The woman reported the assault to the crew of the Philadelphia-to-Los Angeles flight, allowing federal authorities to meet De Jesumaria at the gate.
I'm not exactly legal expert, but I have heard about a little concept of reasonable doubt. Excuse me for my skepticism, but can I get a cross examination in? How does one twisted priest grab a breast, the groin and the buttocks all at the same time? Boom, lawyered. No, but seriously, I have been looking for ways to get a little more handsy in the bedroom and this guy has it down to a science. Are we sure this isn't a simple case of mistaken identity? We sure this lady didn't get molested by a fucking octopus? I juts can't see a way this guy was getting a grab of all the goods unless he's extremely proficient with this feet.
Listen, this isn't a laughing matter, and I'm sure this women is having a hard time dealing with this traumatic event. However, in the court of law it's important to have your story straight down to every single detail. She may have won this one, but she might not be so lucky next time. Plus, you should probably remember where this creeper's hands were when you woke up to his beaming grin. If there is one single moment that should be engrained in your head that would seem to be the most likely of them.
P.S. I don't think we should give this priest a pass or anything, but maybe reduce his sentence a bit? After all, he molested a grown woman instead of prepubescent boy. There's something to be said for that. Looks like we are trending upwards if you ask me. Compared to the sexual misconduct of those he associates with he is basically a saint. He's more of victim of bad company than anything else. Sexual assault is like an occupational hazard in the Catholic church. Two years ago this guys would been entering The 'Phile High Club.
