The next day she reported him. The minister was arrested. Read more:

Today I read reports about the trial against the priest from Salzgitter.

There were already several previous entries about that. One of them was
2011 Jul 30 (3) – Only a very small percentage of abuse cases becomes known.
The last one was:
2012 Jan 16 – Germany: Start of trial in Braunschweig – Minister confesses sexual abuse in 280 cases.

Here now excerpts from reports:

 

Sexual abuse: Public prosecutor demands six and a half years imprisonment for minister

According to the will of the public prosecutor’s office a Catholic minister from Salzgitter is to be six and a half years in prison. The man has confessed to have abused three boys hundreds of times. According to the mind of the prosecution the man showed no honest remorse.

Because of sexual abuse of children a Catholic priest from Salzgitter is to be six and a half years in prison according to the mind of the prosecution. The accused has shamelessly used his position as minister and the trust of the abused children and their parents, said the public prosecutor on Thursday in the trial before the country court in Braunschweig.

The man has conceded the 280 abuse acts with three boys, which he is accused of, but expressed words of remorse only on the third trial day. He asked the mothers of the victims for forgiveness. The public prosecutor described this as an “unbelievable late time” and said: “Nothing of honest remorse arrived at me.” During the trial the minister has always tried to gloss over his encroachments.

The 46 year old has confessed to have repeatedly committed indecent assaults on together three boys in the years 2004 to 2011. Affected are two brothers from Salzgitter and one boy from Braunschweig, who were nine to 15 years old at the time of the acts. The children and the parents had got to know the minister at Communion lessons.

Trial: Abuse before mass – Minister asks for forgiveness

The proceedings at the country court in Braunschweig went into the finals on Thursday: In the afternoon the public prosecutor’s office, the defence and co-plaintiff want to make a speech. It is still open when there will be a sentence.

The Catholic minister had confessed at the start of the trial to have abused the boys of the age between 9 and 15 years 280 times – partly even shortly before mess. For his comprehensive confession the court offered the minister a deal: He must go to jail maximal six and a half years. Such arrangements between judge, public prosecutor and defence are always again there to shorten the proceedings or save victims to give evidence.

The mother of one of the victims was in love with the minister.

Also his homosexual inclination she has never noticed, said the mother. She even had entertained affections for him and also informed him that she was in love with him. To which the minister replied, that for him as a church man a relationship is impossible.

Her son then confided in her, said to her that he does not want that. Two weeks later he finally said: “Listen mum, there was still more. He touched me.” The next day she reported him. The minister was arrested.

The sentence is expected on Thursday.
