Canadian Bishop Criminal Sentencing Continues Today

Former Roman Catholic Bishop Raymond Lahey’s criminal sentencing for his conviction regarding possession of computer child pornography resumes today.
Lahey, who has been incarcerated since pleading guilty to the charges in May, resigned as bishop of Antigonish following his computer pornography arrest in 2009. The sentencing phase has been going on since August.
Today’s testimony is scheduled to be filled by psychiatrists. Lahey’s defense lawyers are recommending leniency based upon the belief that the type of pornography Lahey possessed was less graphic than that of others convicted on similar charges.
