Influential priest in Chile sentenced for child abuse

The ultra-conservative priest of Irish descent has to go four years into protective custody because he evidently abused a girl repeatedly. The prosecution authorities had demanded ten years in prison.

One of the most influential ministers of Chile has been sentenced on Tuesday to four years of protective custody for years of abuse of a small girl. John O'Reilly, who came 1984 from Ireland to Chile, is moreover for his entire life not allowed to take over public posts with responsibility or have anything to do with children professionally. With its judgement the court remained clearly behind the demands of the prosecution authorities for ten years prison.

The 68-year old of the ultra-conservative Catholic order Legionaries of Christ had been found guilty three weeks ago of having abused a today nine year old girl from 2010 to 2012.

For his acts O'Reilly used his position as chaplain and spiritual director in an expensive school run by ministers of Santiago de Chile, the Colegio Cumbres.

Until the getting busted of the scandal O'Reilly was one of the most influential priests of the country with best contacts in economy and politics. 2008 congress granted him Chile nationality.
