Today I read news items that are already a couple of days old and they refer to a case that has been dealt with on this website on several occasions, the last being:

German priest jailed for 6 years for child abuse

A German court has convicted a Roman Catholic priest of some 250 counts of sexually abusing children over a several-year period and sentenced him to six years in prison.

German news agency dapd reported that the state court in Braunschweig on Thursday convicted the priest, who was found guilty of abusing three boys aged 9 to 15 between 2004 and 2011.

The judgement refers to altogether 250 of originally 280 charged abuse deeds. For legal reasons some deeds were deleted, which were difficult to classify time wise. With that the public prosecutor’s office wanted to minimize the risk of a successful appeal. Also the accusation of sexual abuse of youth was dropped. It was the aim to spare the affected boys to give evidence in court.

The diocese Hildesheim has investigated against 25 priests for sexual abuse from 1940 until today. According to statements of the press officer the perpetrators face altogether 40 victims.
