Normal Connecticut former priest Dennis Carey pleads not guilty of possession of child porn/ The Father is now a patient at a behavioral health issues clinic

(CNN) -- A former Catholic priest in Waterford, Connecticut, has been charged with possession of child pornography, according to a statement Tuesday from Waterford police.
Dennis Carey, 66, who resigned recently, was originally held on $100,000 bond after appearing Tuesday in New London Superior Court, the statement said. The court appearance was a bond hearing and no plea was entered, according to CNN affiliate WFSB.
CNN affiliate WTNH reported that Carey was later released on bond.
"It's an addiction that he's going through and he needs help for it," Carey's attorney, Ron Stevens, told WTNH. "And as he mentioned in court, he said to (the judge) 'I need help and I want help.' "
"There's no allegations here of any inappropriate touching of children or anything of that nature," Stevens said.

"He feels very, very, very bad about it. He has an appointment this afternoon with a psychiatrist," the attorney said. "He's going to look for forgiveness."
Waterford police said they arrested Carey on Monday.
According to the police statement, the investigation began in May after America Online (AOL) submitted a report to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children "concerning suspected child pornography that had been sent using an AOL email account."
The probe started in Los Angeles, but then led "to a possible suspect residing in the state of Connecticut," where authorities seized evidence at the St. Paul Parish Rectory in Waterford.
"These allegations are extremely serious and run contrary to everything we believe as a church," said Catholic Bishop Michael R. Cote of the Diocese of Norwich, Connecticut. "To exploit children in that fashion is absolutely reprehensible."

Normal plead not guilty to a charge of first-degree possession of child pornography

Post by Nama on Sun Sep 16, 2012 7:41 pm

Today Fr. Dennis Carey, 65, the former head pastor of Waterford’s St. Paul in Chains Rectory, plead not guilty to a charge of first-degree possession of child pornography.

Carey resigned from St. Paul’s on June 28 after police executed a search warrant on the rectory and found 338 files of child pornography on various computers inside the Roman Catholic church, according to the arrest warrant. Police also said in the warrant that during the search, Carey said he was addicted to child pornography for the last two years, although said he never physically abused a child.

Carey later turned himself in on a charge of first-degree child pornography. During his arraignment hearing on July 3, Carey told Judge Kevin McMahon that he wanted to get help, and his lawyer, Ron Stevens, told reporters after the arraignment that Carey has been struggling with the problem for a long time.

Carey has posted $100,000 bond, and has been released on three conditions: he is not allowed to access the Internet, he is not allowed to possess pornography and he is not allowed to have contact with children under 13. His next court appearance is August 13.

Carey is currently staying at the Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, according to Stevens. Carey refused comment after his court appearance.

Bishop's Letter

In a letter to parishioners this weekend, Bishop Michael Cote of the Diocese of Norwich said he is in the process of dismissing Carey from the clerical state. He also installed Fr. Joseph Whittel as the temporary head pastor of St. Paul's Church.

"To my knowledge no one in the parish or dioceses had reason to suspect or believe Father Carey possessed, collected, or shared child pornography," Cote wrote in the letter. "I certainly did not. These allegations come as a total shock to us, as well to the personnel, employees, volunteers and parishioners at St. Paul's Church."

Cote said the Diocese did not and is not paying for Carey's bond or the cost of his defense.

Normal Priest Charged With Having Child Porn Patient At Behavioral Health Center

Post by Nama on Sun Sep 16, 2012 7:44 pm

September 5, 2012

Fr. Dennis Carey, who was arrested in July for first-degree possession of child pornography, is now a patient at the St. John Vianney Center.
At his court date Tuesday, it was revealed Fr. Dennis Carey is a patient at St. John Vianney Center in Downington, PA, “a faith-centered community that specializes in the treatment of behavioral health issues that are unique to Catholic clergy,” according to the center’s website.

Carey was formerly the head pastor of Waterford’s St. Paul in Chains Rectory until he was arrested in July when police found 338 files of child pornography on computers he owned inside the Roman Catholic Church. Carey had his third court appearance Tuesday, where his case was continued until October 15.

At the appearance, Judge Susan B. Handy confirmed that Carey is a patient at the center, although she said he would be discharged soon to live either with his sister in Westchester, NY, or his parents, who live near Boston. Carey met $100,000 bail in July and was released on several conditions, including mandates to not to interact with children, to avoid the Internet and to not possess any pornography.

The center, according to its website, is a member facility of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and offers a “multi-disciplinary, research-based approach to the behavioral health issues of Catholic religious and priests.”

“Our programs integrate treatment for behavioral health issues with each patient's vocational journey,” the center’s website says. “While fully and faithfully Catholic in our identity, what we hold in common with other Christians inspires us to welcome clergy from all denominations.”

The center is named after St. John Vianney, the patron saint of the parish priest, according to the center's website. According to the website, the center’s goal is to reconnect a patient with his or her faith and engender hope by listening to a patient and never allowing them “to feel as though they are a number, a diagnosis or a problem.”

Patch called Michael Strammiello, Director of Communications for the Diocese of Norwich, which Carey is part of. Strammiello said he was not aware that Carey was in the center and said he couldn’t comment about it.

Strammiello did say that the diocese is in the process of defrocking Carey. He added the diocese was watching what happened with Carey’s court case.

Normal Fr. Dennis Carey Dies Of Cardiac Arrest On May 20, While Awaiting Trial~ His Lawyers Move To Have Charges Dismissed

Post by NiteSpinR on Sun Sep 01, 2013 9:14 pm

May 29, 2013

Fr. Dennis Carey, the former pastor of St. Paul Church in Waterford accused of possession of child pornography, died last week—but he will have a final day in court.

At the request of his attorney, Ronald Stevens, of Niantic Law firm Stevens, Harris, Guernsey & Quilliam, the case is scheduled to go before New London Superior Court Judge Handy on Friday. Stevens said he will be presenting a death certificate and asking that the case be dismissed, as is standard procedure when an accused dies before the case can go to trial.

Carey turned himself in to State Police Troop E on July 2, 2012, where he was charged with possession of child pornography in the first degree. The charges came as a result of an investigation that began almost exactly a year ago after the Connecticut State Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children was alerted to a possible Connecticut suspect in a case that was being investigated by the agency's counterpart in California.

Carey resigned from the church and was released after posting a $100,000 bond. He had entered a plea of "not guilty," but had said publicly that he wanted to get help. The 66-year-old Carey had been in failing health after he suffered a stroke a couple of months ago. Stevens said Carey died of cardiac arrest on May 20 at St. Mary Home rehabilitation center in West Hartford.

Stevens said the court is very likely to drop the charges.

"They obvious can’t proceed against him," he said. "It’s a sad event that he died. It was a difficult case."

In this case there were no known victims waiting for their day in court to testify against Carey. "No one ever made any claims that there was anything done to any children," Stevens said.

"All I can say is, 'It's done!'" writes St. Paul in Chains parishioner Andrea Kanfer in an email to Patch. Although, as she also noted, it's not over for everyone.

"I just keep thinking of and praying for all those kids, who are forced into that business, who have no voice," she said.

This is news to me... I did not know that death means an automatic dismissal of the charges.
