Priest Played Elvis Music to Drown Child's Screams
Oh... please, somebody think of a joke to make this go away...
A Dublin priest who raped a seven-year-old young boy on the altar, after tying him up with cords from his vestments and playing Elvis Presley songs to drown his screams, was sentenced to 16 years for abusing young boys.
Tony Walsh, 57, was a famous member of a priests music group known for his Elvis impersonations. He was a serial molester whose activities were known to senior figures in the Dublin archdiocese who overlooked his crimes.

We Knew Him As Simply "B.J."
I remember that he claimed to be descended from Judge Jeffreys, the notorious hanging judge of the "Bloody Assizes" during 17th century England's tumultuous swing from monarchy to republic and back again. Jeffreys left no male heir, but his indelible mark on history impressed even U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who has cited Jeffreys as an example of an 'extremist.' And if anyone should know about Judges Gone Wild, it's Scalia. (After all, he has to sit beside Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Samuel Alito and the worst of them all, Ruth "Grisly" Ginsberg!)
