Former Kansas City Creeper Priest Gets Off

In the end, as far as the courts are concerned, there won't be any justice for victims or the faithful following horrific allegations against an old school Kansas City priest.

Let's not forget that the local church has paid out BIG BUCKS and endured an overall decline thanks to his tarnished legacy.

Here's a highlight from a recent statement from the Diocese of Kansas City - St. Joseph on allegations of sexual abuse by Bishop Joseph Hart:

This case is of special interest to the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph because several of the accusations against Bishop Hart originated from our diocese, dating to the time when he served here as a priest prior to becoming a bishop in Cheyenne in 1976.

The canonical rebuke stated that Bishop Hart remains prohibited from “presiding or participating anywhere in any public celebration of the Liturgy” and also that he not to have “any contact with minors, youth, seminarians and vulnerable adults.” . . .

While a decision has been rendered, we must not lose hope. The Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph remains committed to protecting the most vulnerable and to the ongoing work of accompanying survivors on the path to healing. I invite all the faithful to join me in prayer, particularly for all those who have been directly wounded by clerical sexual abuse, themselves and their families, and for the Church.

In time, he will be in hell. Nobody escapes judgement day.

But he repented and was let go for time served. He's now studying for the priesthood.

Innocent until proven guilty. He was never proved guilty. Human justice is just a pale imitation of God’s justice and he will be judge of all of us, not just the people we want to see punished.

If the catholic church was that concerned about the safety of its children they would help get this child rapist sent to prison

The Wyoming attorney general has decided against charging retired bishop Joseph Hart, effectively ending law enforcement and victims’ efforts to hold accountable a top Catholic cleric facing decades of sexual abuse allegations.

A spokeswoman for the Cheyenne Police Department, which launched the sexual abuse investigation into Joseph Hart in April 2018, said in an email that Attorney General Bridget Hill would not be pursuing charges. Cheyenne Police brought the case to Hill’s office in July, after prosecutors elsewhere in Wyoming also declined to charge the retired bishop.

It brings to a halt a months-long effort by Cheyenne Police to have Hart charged. It also effectively ends a 2 1/2 year criminal probe that, had it led to charges, would have made Hart the highest-ranking Catholic clergyman to be prosecuted for abuse in U.S. history.
