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.
I hear you old and tired.We have another priest coming up for trial in Philly.
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.
If you've got any additional information on him that could lead to an indictment, go right on ahead. Throw the book at him.
