My recollection - which gets faultier by the minute - is that there were rumblings about possibly seeking an indictment against Law on some sort of conspiracy charges. To date, it hadn't been tried against the Church hierarchy. Before it could happen, Law beat a path out of dodge.

My recollections aren't always accurate anymore, but I really was of the impression that Law was afraid to come back to Boston. If I'm wrong, why is he retired in another country instead of spending his final years near family and friends.

Here in Philadelphia, if Cardinal Bevilacqua hadn't died, I have no doubt he'd be sitting in a cell next to Msgr. Lynn and serving a longer sentence

And we didn’t have near the problem down here in Philly that they had up in Boston.

A grand jury is perfectly capable of indicating someone who is out of the country or otherwise unavailable. It happens all the time.

Law was at Sta. Maria Maggiore in Rome (Italy) not in the Vatican City. The U.S. has an extradition treaty with Italy. He could have been picked up by the Italian authorities at any time, if there were charges, an arrest warrant, an indictment, anything.

The fact is that Law is not a fugitive because there are not, and have not been, any criminal charges. And this is because the Mass. AG and the district attorneys in 5 counties did not turn up any perjury, obstruction of justice, criminal conspiracy, civil liability or anything of the sort.

Sorry.

If you've got any additional information on him that could lead to an indictment, go right on ahead. Throw the book at him.
