Father Michael Baker and Father Carlos Rodriguez Criminally Charged With Numerous Counts of Child Molestation
If Fathers Baker and Rodriguez are found guilty and convicted on all alleged counts of molestation against them, they could each face prison sentences of more than twenty years. Although the defense team for Father Baker is trying to minimize the allegations, we remain optimistic and hopeful that the arrests of these perpetrators will encourage more victims to come forward and help substantiate their case.
We hope that cases like this encourage other victims of abuse to step forward and let the truth out. Men like these need to be in prison, but for that to happen the survivors of their predations must speak out.
