The Archdiocese of Portland has given a loan to Fr. Angel Armando Perez, to hire a top defense lawyer, Marc Blackman.  His fees are said to start at $50,000

Perez has admitted to sexual wrongdoing with a 12 year old boy, who escaped the situation, and was chased down the street by the priest. Neighbors took the boy to safety.

Parishioners are shocked by the news.

Time for some house cleaning in Portland.  They need to practice budgetary restraint.
