A jury on Wednesday convicted a priest and teacher in a pivotal church-abuse case that rocked the Philadelphia archdiocese and sent a church official to prison for child endangerment.
He told the social worker he had been raped for five hours by Engelhardt after Mass; beaten and tied with sashes by the defrocked Avery; and raped by Shero at school.
"OK, so he sued the archdiocese," Assistant District Attorney Mark Cipolletti argued to jurors Friday. "Who can blame him? ... No dollar amount could fix this, and never could."
