CBC reports today:
Former N.S. bishop charged with possession of child porn
Wednesday, September 30, 2009 - CBC
A former Roman Catholic bishop from Nova Scotia is facing child pornography charges.
Raymond Lahey, the former bishop of the diocese of Antigonish, is known as the man who oversaw a $15-million settlement with people who said they had been sexually abused by priests in the diocese dating back to 1950.
He was returning to Canada from the United States when he was arrested at the Ottawa Airport last week after members of the Canada Border Services Agency performed a random check of his laptop computer.
Lahey has been charged with distributing and selling child pornography. No court date has been set.
On Saturday, Lahey, 69, announced his resignation as bishop of the Antigonish diocese, which the Vatican accepted.
"We are grateful to him for his dedicated and generous service to the diocese," said Anthony Mancini, archbishop of Halifax, in a statement on Saturday.
In a letter to parishioners, Lahey said he needed time for "personal renewal."
I'm guessing some of that "personal renewal" may be renewing acquaintances with an attorney or two from those settlement days. Those were good times, weren't they, raymond?
His jerks just keep messin' up . . . .
