For sexual abuse: Ten years prison for priest in Chile

For sexual abuse of minors the Chilean judiciary has sentenced a Catholic priest to ten years in prison. The court in Melipilla, 60 km west of the capital Santiago de Chile, saw it as proven that the priest Ricardo Muñoz of the parish Santa Teresita demanded sex from four minors of the age of 16 and 17 years for money payment.

In addition the court sentenced the lover of the priest to five years in prison. She is to have arranged the meetings with the minors in a motel. Moreover the priest was sentenced for being in possession of child pornography. The 55 year old has two children together with his lover. His double life came to light through police investigations. The case became known in Chile through a TV documentation of the TVN station.

In the city Concepción, 500 km south of Santiago, the Chilean judiciary Friday ordered the imprisonment while awaiting trial for a priest and former headmaster who is accused of sexual cruelty with three 15 to 17 years old students.

There have been numerous abuse cases in the Catholic Church in Chile. In April the church formally apologized for the agonies which their priest have done to children. At present also investigations against two well-known ministers are going on in the Latin American country, in which 80 % of the population are Catholic: against Fernando Karadina, one of the most influential priests of Chile, who is to have abused minors over a period of 20 years, as well as against Sister Paula, the former mother-superior of the Ursulinas Order.
