Montgomery County police have charged a former Georgetown Preparatory School teacher with two counts of child abuse and one count of third-degree sexual offense involving former students.

Garrett David Orr, 57, a former Jesuit priest, was previously investigated by Jesuit authorities, who found that he inappropriately touched a student in the 2002-03 academic year at the prestigious North Bethesda prep school.

What else does one expect a 57 year old former preist to be doing? Touching grown women, NEVER. Religion blows.

I'm not surprised Mr. Orr was found hiding in Pennsylvania.

Is Pennsylvania a Pro-Pedophile State?
You be the judge

By Mike Ference

PA State Rep. Lisa Bennington, D-Allegheny County, held a press conference on May 12 in Harrisburg, PA to discuss House Bill 1137, legislation known as the Child Victim’s Act of Pennsylvania, which addresses statute of limitations and identifying sex abusers.

If the bill passes, it would change the age at which a civil suit could be filed from until the accuser is 30 to 50, bringing the civil statute of limitations in line with the criminal statute. The bill would also suspend the civil statute of limitations for two years in child sex abuse cases in which the statute has expired so that people over the age limit could file a suit. And it would allow the filing of such actions against child sex abusers and their enablers in both public and private institutions.

According to Bennington, it’s the private institutions where offenders have been allowed to move on and continue with their lives. “Their victims have been left behind to pick up the pieces, never getting their day in court and or a chance to see justice carried out. They live with this horrific crime for the rest of their lives,” she points out.

A 2005 Philadelphia Grand Jury Report uncovered 63 priests in the Philadelphia archdiocese who had abused hundreds of children over several decades. In some cases, archdiocese leaders intentionally concealed the abuse to protect the church.
