A priest convicted of stealing from his church wants to delay sentencing because he has cancer. My gut reaction is unsympathetic. Let him spend his last days in a prison hospital.
The Rev. Michael Jude Fay faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced Dec. 4 after he pleaded guilty last month to a federal fraud charge. He resigned last year as pastor of St. John Roman Catholic Church in Darien.
He has asked to have his sentencing delayed until April, after he undergoes chemotherapy treatment for prostate cancer which has spread to his bones and lymph nodes and become resistant to traditional chemotherapy.
I vote for sending him to prison. You?
