A Calaveras County grand jury has indicted the Rev. Michael Kelly of the Stockton Diocese on several child molestation counts. The district attorney's office, in a statement issued Monday, said it would seek to work with authorities to extradite Kelly from his native Ireland to face the charges.

The criminal grand jury indicted Kelly on three counts of lewd and lascivious conduct on a child and one count of oral copulation with a child.

    Actually, the evidence presented (which will most certainly include the credibility of all witnesses) must be enough to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Or are you suggesting that since the defendant is a Catholic priest that the threshold be higher? Priests, ministers and other officers of the different churches are human beings like everyone else. As such, they shouldn’t expect different treatment in any legal proceeding, except that if found guilty any punishment meted out should reflect their higher level of responsibility toward those they serve – including God.

    There is an old hymn which goes: "Praise God from whom all blessings flow . . ."

    When this jury sits it will be a criminal case, not civil. The evidence must be overpowering! The credibility of the young man (men) must be nearly unassailable for the case to reach this stage.
