California Archbishop Booked For DUIPosted by Phil Ferguson on February 25th, 2013 – 1 Comment – Posted in Uncategorized
This guy has been selected to be the next archbishop for the area. He was just having a few drinks…. Yeah, that is how it happens. Mr. Cordileone was caught at a DUI checkpoint and tested over the legal limit.
Cordileone was stopped around 12:30 a.m. on the outskirts of the campus, a residential area of modest houses, apartment buildings and restaurants where college students mix with the general population.
It once again shows how sad and pathetic the catholic church is. The limit in California is .08 and he cold not pass. So they booked him and he spent the night in the grey bar hotel!
The archbishop-elect was booked into San Diego County jail two hours later then released at 11:59 a.m. Saturday on $2,500 bond, sheriff’s records show. The San Diego city attorney’s office, which prosecutes misdemeanor DUI offenses, said it had not received a report on the arrest.
Well done officers! The law should apply to everyone. Sadly, he is still expected to get his big promotion.
Because Catholic bishops are answerable only to the pope, any potential discipline would have to come from the Vatican, said Michael Ritty, a canon lawyer in private practice in upstate New York.
“If there was anything, it would be handled in Rome, most likely by the Congregation for Bishops. Depending on the question or type of criminal charge, it might go directly to the pope or as directly as you can get,” Ritty said.
So…. nothing will happen!
You can watch a video from NBC below. What do you think of the interviews they posted? It seems like a lot of people giving the guy a break. What do you think? Is he such a nice guy that they should give him a free pass – just this once?
