Priest Pleads Guilty to One Count of Attempted Rape

______________________________

Thursday afternoon, a Greek Orthodox priest accused of trying to solicit sex from young boys entered a guilty plea in court. Patrick Nicholas Hughes was sentenced to six years in prison after being arrested last week on one count of attempted rape and one count of attempted unlawful conduct with a minor. Hughes admitted to posting an Internet ad for “taboo sex with no age restrictions” when he tried to solicit two boys, ages 9 and 14, for sex. The same day he posted the ad, he learned he was actually corresponding with sheriff’s detectives, who arrested him. In court, Hughes called the events a catastrophe, saying, “I’m abjectly sorry for, and I know I cannot repair, but nevertheless need to express that sorry to everybody”. As part of a plea deal, the judge sentenced the Hughes to six years in prison and five years post community control. Hughes will also have to register as a Tier 3 Sex Offender for the rest of his life.

Hughes was a priest at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral. This afternoon, the acting dean of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Columbus OH pleaded guilty to a bill of information accusing him of trying to meet two boys for sex. Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Mark Serrott sentenced Patrick N Hughes, 56, to six years in prison. Prosecutors and defence attorneys recommended the sentence. The maximum for one count of attempted rape is eight years. Deputy sheriffs arrested Hughes last week. He was accused of posting an online ad “looking for taboo sex with no age restrictions”, a prosecutor said during Hughes’ initial appearance in court. A detective from the Internet Crimes Against Children task force followed up on the ad, leading Hughes to set up a meeting for what he thought would be sex with two boys, ages 9 and 14. The Metropolis of Pittsburgh, which oversees the congregation, immediately suspended him from his work at the cathedral, pending an investigation.

Editor’s Note:

Observe how quickly this happened. This scumbag got arrested last week, and, only a week later, they’re throwing his arse in the slam for hard time after a plea deal. This is “clout in action”. That is, the GOAA has political pull, and it isn’t afraid to use it. In Russian terms, they have blat to spare… they didn’t even let this turkey get bail… they let him rot in a jail cell until the court date… to “encourage the others”, no doubt. Compare this to the OCA and Saliba. They’ll pay for Storheim and Abdelehad, just you wait… Lyonyo, or no Lyonyo…

Now, that there’s been a conviction, I can speak openly of paedophile priests. Hughes has been the only one caught… or caught under “unfriendly” circumstances. If half of what’s whispered about certain OCA clergy and hierarchs is true… trust me, the konvertsy don’t whom they’re defending. If they did… but I fear that wouldn’t change a thing. They’re nutter fanatics and cultists… the sooner they’re gone, the better.

Former Mansfield Priest Patrick Nicholas Hughes Arrested In Sex Sting

______________________________

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Orthodox priest on sex charges who served in Mansfield OH as late as 2009. Cops arrested Patrick Hughes, also known as the Rev Nicholas Hughes, on Wednesday night. Police said that the Franklin County Internet Crimes Against Children task force arrested him on suspicion of attempted rape and attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Hughes, a native of Alabama, served at Ss Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Mansfield for about 18 years. He lived at St Theodore House, a small monastery on Portland Way South in Galion OH. He left there in 2009. Most recently, he’s served a Greek Orthodox parish in Columbus OH.

Sheriff Zach Scott said that the investigation began earlier Wednesday, when Hughes allegedly posted an ad on an adult social networking site. The nature of the ad indicated that someone was looking for sexual relations with children. A detective responded to the ad and began communicating with Hughes. During the conversation, authorities allege, Hughes believed he was setting up a meeting with two boys, ages 9 and 14, for sexual activity. The cops arrested Hughes when he travelled to a location in Franklin County under the pretence of meeting the boys. Later that night, investigators searched Hughes’ north Columbus hotel room, where they recovered a laptop computer. They will examine the computer. Galion Police Detective Eric Bohach said that there are no other local priests involved in this incident, saying, “We’ve talked to people here, and there’s no indication that anybody else is involved”.

Hughes, 56, is acting dean at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral. He was a one-year interim priest at the church. The 2011 Richland-Ashland Regional CenturyLink telephone book lists Hughes’ address as Portland Way South. He’s in jail on felony charges of attempted rape and attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. His bond was set at 100,000 USD (3.1 million Roubles. 77,000 Euros. 62,000 UK Pounds) during a Thursday court appearance. The news release from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office gave Hughes’ address as 6191 Zumstein Drive on the North Side, which is a Hawthorn Suites hotel. Anyone with information on Hughes should call the Galion Police Department at (419) 468-5255 or the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office at (614) 525-3448.

Editor’s Note:

Note well that Hughes still sits in the slam, and neither the bishop or the parish is doing anything to spring him. That says a lot. One of the Cabinet said, “He’s just another homosexual convert priest”… yes, and the konvertsy continually caterwaul about sexual purity and poofs… when there’s a greater amount of it (proportionately) amongst them than found in real Orthodox circles. Fancy that. What was that about the long-time association of Fathausen, Gerasim Eliel, Damascene Christiansen, Freddie M-G, and Dreher with Gleb Podmoshensky (even after the ROCOR Holy Synod gave GP le sabot)? Hmm… proves my point, doesn’t it? If they’re not closeted poofs, they’re enablers of same… all whilst ranting about “homosexuals in the Church”… it’s a wonderful day in the neighbourhood, kids…

By the way, probably, Hughes is in “Punk City” (Protective Custody)… that’s slang for Solitary Confinement outside of General Population. That’s so the decent cons don’t murder him (literally). If there’s anyone hated in the slam, it’s a child molester. The half-life of such sorts is reckoned in seconds…

21 September 2012. Official Statement on Hughes’ Suspension

Metropolitan Maximos Aghiorgoussis (1935- ) of Pittsburgh giving Hughes the Great Schema

______________________________

I was sent this:

It is with heaviness of heart that I write to inform you that the V Rev NICHOLAS HUGHES is hereby suspended from all priestly activity effective immediately and until further notice pending the outcome of an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.

Metropolitan Savas Zembillas

That’s all… but that’s all that’s necessary. Besides which, it was timely and released immediately. That’s good on the Greeks…

Hey, all you perspirin’ minds out there… click here… it’ll take you to Mugshots.com. That means that Hughes’ arrest is kosher and on the level. I wonder if he’s still in the slam or did the Greeks bail him out?

This is why I don’t chide the RCs for nasty clergy the way that Rod Dreher did (and his being a former papist made his snide attack twice as nasty and un-Christian)… hey, we’re no slouches in the Sinful-Ginful Department ourselves! If you needed proof of Satan and his works… look no further. After all, this jabronie was caught in a sting… you can bet that the coppers took and sealed his computer. That’s why you should NEVER EVER log onto hoochy-kootchy sites. If you do, the “cookies” have a half-life longer than that of U-238, and they could SINK you. That’s a word to the wise. Not only is kiddie porno immoral… it’s just plain dangerous (unless you WANT to find out if the local hoosegow has rats, first-hand, that is).
