    GREELEY - A former Catholic priest who was found jogging naked in Frederick must register as a sex offender, a Weld County judge ordered today.

Whipkey was convicted of indecent exposure in June after a five-hour trial. He faced between six and 18 months in prison along with having to register as a sex offender. He was the pastor of...

    The Democrat National Convention of the pro-abortion party of the United States will take place within the Archdiocese of Denver from Saturday, August 23, with the official Welcoming Celebration, through Friday, August 29, 2008. More than 50,000 persons, including Democrat Party elected politicians, party members, delegates, and media, are expected for the weeklong event at various venues throughout the city. Many of these visiting folks will be pro-abortion Catholics — or Catholics in name only. Ironically, the 'Freedom from Religion Foundation' is posting a billboard near the Convention Center that says, 'Keep Religion Out of Politics.' Many are wondering if...

    Although the Vatican is the only entity with power to take away a priest's title, a former Catholic leader of parishes in Erie, Mead and Frederick won't lead any more Masses after being convicted this week for jogging nude in public, church officials said. Robert Whipkey, 53, was placed on administrative leave by the Archdiocese of Denver in August after he was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure for jogging nude around a high school track in the town of Frederick early one morning last summer. A Frederick police officer saw a naked Whipkey walking home from the high school...

    It took a jury less than three hours to find a priest guilty of indecent exposure for jogging naked. Whipkey and his defense attorney Harvey Steinberg did not comment following the verdict. Around 6:30 p.m. today jurors reached the verdict in the trial of Rev. Robert Whipkey, 53, who told Frederick police officer Zacheria Hahn in June of 2007 he was jogging nude early in the morning at the high school track because he sweats profusely. Whipkey’s defense attorney Harvey Steinberg argued Whipkey did not intend to show his genitals to the public. Prosecutors said Whipkey’s excuse of sweating too...

    A Frederick priest had a habit of walking around nude, according to testimony at an indecent exposure trial today. Robert Whipkey, 53, was arrested when he was seen heading home on June 22 last year after a pre-dawn jog in the buff. A police officer today testified he was stunned to see a large nude man walking down the street near his home that morning. "I have seen lots of things in my line of work," said Officer Zachariah Hahn. "But I was shocked to see a man walking completely nude down the street." Today was the first day of...

    GREELEY, Colo. -- Jury selection began Monday morning for a priest accused of indecent exposure for running naked very early in the morning. The Rev. Robert Whipkey, 53, is on trial in Weld County District Court. He was arrested last June in Frederick, about 25 miles north of Denver, after an officer said he was seen walking naked on a street at 4:35 a.m. The jury selection process is expected to last through Tuesday. Even though he is a Roman Catholic priest, the judge has approved a defense motion to exclude any references to Whipkey's profession during the trial because...

    GREELEY — A Frederick priest accused of indecent exposure may negotiate a plea deal since two court rulings did not go his way this week, his attorney said in court on Friday. The Rev. Robert Whipkey, 54, was excused from attending Friday’s court hearing, so he did not hear Weld County Judge Timothy Kerns rule that three previous incidents of Whipkey’s being naked when the public could see him will be evidence at his trial. “The defendant places himself in circumstances in which his nudity can be seen by others,” Kerns said. Because Whipkey was not charged in those cases,...

Lee Harrell argued that Whipkey believed he was in custody when he talked to Frederick Police Officer Donald Loveless. “I know what I did was wrong” was the statement Harrell convinced County Judge Timothy Kerns to keep out of evidence when the case goes to trial. Loveless spoke to Whipkey...

    A long, long time ago, I was the religion writer and columnist for the Rocky Mountain News in Denver. It’s a fascinating city in a beautiful region (heaven, you know) and I envy people who get to work out there. The person who holds that position these days, and has for many years, is Jean Torkelson. And I must say that I do not envy her right now. Or maybe I do envy her. That’s what I cannot figure out at the moment. You ask, “Why?” At the moment, Torkelson is covering what has to be one of the strangest...

    Sterling's former police chief confirmed Monday that he looked into reports in 1999 that 11-year- old boys had seen Father Robert Whipkey naked at a summer camp that year. Whipkey is the Catholic priest who was ticketed in June for allegedly jogging nude near his rectory home in Frederick. Former police chief Larry Graham said none of the parents of the boys made formal complaints to police at the time of the 1999 incident and he concluded that no crime had been committed. "I asked if there was some kind of sexual contact," said Graham, now an investigator with the...
