Rev. Donald McGuire SJ need not undergo rehab as sex offender for now, a Wis. judge decided. It would involve discussing his past, which could be used against him in court, his lawyers argued. They are not admissible, countered the prosecutor. His lawyers want probation suspended pending appeal of his conviction, but prosecutors are mulling revoking of it and thus keeping him in jail. He is currently in jail for violating it.
Meanwhile, busy, cluttered, unstable new website notwithstanding, Sun-Times continues to ignore the McGuire story, as it ignored the seminary fatal crash on St. Mary of Lake grounds some months back. As if priests’ issues are out of bounds.
