Father laFache was arrested last Wednesday along wth his female bookkeeper for embezzaling 250,000.00 from the church' The story that appeared in the Utica O.D. was just a cover story. He is in Albany New York. His book-keeper was brought out of the rectory in handcuffs. It was witnessed by all. Fr. LaFache has been on a downward spiral for many many years. Yes we all love him, but he is only human. Those who don't know him well, well here it is....he has been gambling big time at Turningstone...seen by many of us....he has been drinking heavily, been in accidents with people removing him from the scene before any one saw him.Also he has been suffering from depression for many many yrs and recently lost his partner just a few weeks ago.I don't think i have to explain who his partner is. All we can do is pray for him and for a healing of his health. I believe the church will try to cover this up and more than likely they did on the O.D. story...but it will be hard. This is a tough pill everyone is going to have to swallow, but there it is. I imagine once fr LaFache is evaluated , then proceedings will come along at a slow clip. This story will get mangled by the Church for they are known to hide stories and cover themselves.
YOU KNOW nothing....your whole story is a lie...Father Lfache WAS NOT arrested...I REPEAT NOT ARRESTED...oh what tales you make up;...did you lie awake at night all these days to conjure up such a story.....pat was NOT arrested...she retired as she did from MVCC 2 months ago.....I know that as a fact...YOU KNOW NOTHING..now if YOU said you are a dreamer. I would sayYOU are correct..so stop you rubbish ralk and go scrub your depends...snitch!

St. Anthony/St. Agnes is a poor parish..to embezzle 250,000.00 it would have to have been over a period of YEARS, because OUR church doesn't collect that much money in a year or so....so why didn't the auditors/bookeeper pick it up years ago???? Because it NEVER happened

that's a story that some 'nitwit' concocted in his 'brainless' vacuum he calls his head.. It is not true..The 'goon' that wrote it was referring to HIMSELF and he doesn't even know it...he is simply CLUELESS! Pay NO mind to him

58-year-old Herbert Koestner brought the computer to the Best Buy on Commercial Drive in New Hartford.

The laptop was seized and forensically examined.

Numerous images were then found on the computer that depicted children under the age of sixteen of varying age engaged in varied types of sexual acts.

Koestner is charged with a felony count of Possessing a Sexual Performance By a Child.

Koestner was arraigned in Town of New Hartford Court and was released to the representation of his attorney. He is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.

Ahhhh so there it is. NYS Trooper Tom E Fort killed himself when he became aware through friends that he was being investigated for molesting two girls who were on his coaching job's "team".

I wonder why he was so worried? Everyone knows the DAs and Troopers give their own free passes.

Look use guys, he's 75 and now retired. Leave him and his family alone. We all have our impulse control issues. This thread is too much, even for Topix.

No We did not. I remember when Father Feilx Colissimo said to all of us :Curse You Children" because we did not raise enough for the Hope Appeal

is St. Anthony's has never had that kind of money over the last 20 years . Heck, their collections only amount to 5-6,000 on a good weekend and all the rest of the moneymakers, fish fries, barbecues, etc. don't add up to much more.... so what is really going on here...???
