Is the judge going to announce the jail sentence sometime this month? What are the min/max jail term options?

Have any of the vocally Pro-Mr.G personnel at St. Eleanor's been removed yet from the school or are they going to continue to get a free pass for ignoring the word of the brave boys and families who came forward and suffered ridicule?

The judge certainly has much to consider in deciding the punishment for this case.

We hope the boys and families get the justice that the school's officials failed to provide.

It looks like the judge has really had it with Mr. G's repeated delaying tactics regarding formal sentencing. When a judge starts pounding a table with his fist - now THAT speaks volumes.

October 27 will bring the boys and their families some kind of answer.

How long a sentence will Mr. G receive?

The judge clearly is very unhappy that the guy waited so long to admit guilt and then has tried to delay the sentence with excuse after excuse.

How are things at St. Eleanor's school now? Are the former Mr. G supporters still bad mouthing the boys and families even now they have left the school?

I can't understand why personnel were not fired for their repeated efforts to defend that child abuser. Sickening stuff, for sure.

Judges always pound their fists on the table. Ask any lawyer. In traffic court the judges pound their fists on the table. They do it to show they can. Judge Judy does it, and this judge knows all the press this case is getting from this case. I only say that because you should not interpret the judge's actions as an indication of how they will rule.

What could "Mr. G" and his supporters be thinking to run a Paid Ad in the Norristown Times Herald before his October 27 sentencing?

If he believes he is winning any favor with the judge or the victims' families he is WRONG. He put those poor families thru Hell with countless denials and manipulations.

Hopefully the judge will finally deliver Justice and keep "Mr. G" away from children once and for all. Amen.

I believe that 6 to 18 years is not enough for the damage he has caused these boys for the rest of their lives.

I agree with you In Shock.
For what he has done to those boys, along with his denials of guilt throughout the majority of this mess- it's just ridiculous. He could have gotten so much more time, and he should have. It is a joke.

Very, Very Troubling...Apparently there were even MORE kids victimized.

WHO were the friends in court for him today? Anyone employed by the school?

Victims, parents address court, Vito Granieri at sentencing hearing

http://www.timesherald.com/articles/2010/10/2...

below from the article......

In the immediate aftermath of the boys’ accusations against Granieri, the community took Granieri’s side against them and some of the victims were forced to find new schools in order to avoid classmates who believed the accusations were fabricated, testimony revealed.

In a letter to one victim’s family, an unidentified member of the community even implied the boys should refuse to testify and, moreover, leave the school.

“The defendant’s persistent declarations of innocence and frequent challenges to the victims’ credibility only spurred on the community’s abhorrent behavior toward the victims and their families,” Assistant District Attorney Samantha Cauffman argued.“It was truly awful and I’m ashamed of the community for coming out against (the victims) in a case like this.”

The young boy who spoke at the sentencing is an absolutely Brave HERO. The boy's candor will help him recover in the years to come from this horrible crime.

The fact that Vito had done this to so many boys, even MORE whose families chose not to file charges, is clear proof of how EVIL his behavior was.

Even IF the parents could ever possibly forgive Vito for what he did Physically to the boys (and frankly, what parent could ever truly do so???), the fact that he and his CRUEL and HEARTLESS adult supporters at the school put so much mental torment upon these innocent kids and families makes this whole scenario far, far worse.

Why aren't those adults being FORCED out of the school and parish?

They need to be GONE from St. Eleanor's. PERIOD. No mercy for their horrible behavior, lies, and gossip toward the families of Vito's VICTIMS.

If they won't go voluntarily, THROW them out !!!

I agree wholeheartedly with you about the bravery shown by that child as well as the anger towards the idiots who blindly supported Mr. G and badmouthed the victims. Don't worry, karma comes around and they will get theirs in the end. Keep the faith.

To all that adamantly supported this person, shame on you. The truth finally comes out and you have given these poor boys no credit to come forward. Vito Granieri should rot in hell for eternity.
