Louisiana Priest Has Abuse Case Dismissed (Thank God)

This sounds like a good thing!!

A Baton Rouge appeals court has unanimously upheld the dismissal of a sexual abuse case against a former Crowley priest.
In March of 2003, a man identified only as "john doe" filed a suit against Rev. Joseph Pellettieri more than 30 years after the alleged incident.
According to published reports, the unidentified plaintiff claimed he may have been hypnotized and that he did not recall any incident until february 2002

Good Grief. I can't imagine being a retired teacher minding my own business and some former student 30 years later brings up allegations like this against me. How do you defend yourself against THAT!!

Much more here at the Baton Rouge Advocate.
