Founder of Life Teen Will Face Criminal Charges

In spite of his defense lawyers’ testimony, Monsignor Dale Fushek will face five counts of contributing to delinquency of a minor, two counts of indecent exposure and three counts of assault. Fushek attempted to hide behind the First Amendment arguing that his salacious sex talk in the confessional was protected under the Freedom of Religion provisions in the First Amendment.

According to testimony, Fushek was obsessed with sex and peppered the children with sex questions during confession. He would also prance around his rectory naked. I hate to think how many children this predator may have injured. Fushek founded the popular Life Teen movement and was active in youth activities for many years.
