“The shame, embarrassment, feeling of low self-worth, and scores of “labels” we give ourselves are not fitting. I am beginning to see how I had no control over the situation. He was a big man, I was a little boy.” ― Charles L. Bailey Jr., In the Shadow of the Cross link
Tom Chantry’s casse now scheduled for jury selection
I learned the following from Todd Wilhelm today.
A jury trial set for 1/8/18. Dates shift around quite a bit in these sort of cases, so we’ll see if that happens.
Why Todd thinks ARBCA should be worried.
According to Todd, if it is true that ARBCA knew of the allegations against Tom Chantry and intentionally did not report them. then ARBCA should be concerned.
Here is an interesting court case from the same country in AZ that the Chantry case will be tried. It seems that leaders in the ARBCA may have reason to be nervous for their failure to report Chantry to law enforcement.
According to the Daily Courier in Cottonwood man takes plea deal in child sex case, father charged with failure to report.
Christian Swank plead guilty to three counts of attempted sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 15 and one count of attempted child molestation.
Swank’s father, Brandon Swank, is currently facing a charge of failing to report neglect of a minor and is set for a pretrial conference in Verde Valley Justice Court in December, court records state.
YCSO detectives discovered that during December of 2016, (the father) became aware of the sexual abuse of a child by his son, Christian,” D’Evelyn said, but he chose not to report the crime to law enforcement and requested that family members also not report the crime.
