JUDGE LAYS INTO PRIEST PEDOPHILE
Rev. Francis Nelson, a 38 year old Catholic priest who sexually abused a 12 year old altar girl, was blasted yesterday by a judge and then sentenced to four months behind bars. Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Albert Tomei said, You didn't steal any money. You didn't assault her with a slap. You took her spiritual life away. You damaged her for life by your actions. 'Pride goeth before the fall.' You know the proverb. It's in the Bible, the judge added. And this is what you exercised in this case. Moments earlier, Nelson, still wearing his white collar, insisted on his innocence.
