Clerical molesters and confreres dead

Two convicted Basilian molesters  are dead.

Convicted Basilian clerical molesters and confreres William Hodgson Marshall and Father Robert Whyte csb are dead.

Both taught at St. Michael’s College School  in Toronto  in the early 50s.   Both were at Assumption College in Windsor Ontario in latter part of the same decade.  Both have been living at the Cardinal Flahiff Basilian Centre in Toronto  for years (Whyte since shortly after his 1990 conviction and subsequent incarceration, and Marshall since around 1998 following his return from St. Lucia.)

Marshall, who pled guilty June 2011 to 17 charges related to sex abuse of 17 victims was sentenced to two years in jail.  Some time after his guilty plea he was laicized/defrocked.  .  He continued to live in the Basilian residence in Toronto after his laicization.

Whyte, who pled guilty in 1990 to 18 charges of sex abuse of boys aged 11 to 17, was sentenced to four years in prison.

The pair died six days apart.  (more...)
