Charles Carfrey worked out a plea deal that will put him back on the streets in just four short years. His victims are pissed.
In interviews with The Republic, many of the women who came forward against Carfrey decried the plea deal. It lets him off too easily for all the damage he has caused them, they say, and makes it possible for him to find another group to prey on when he is released.
"It's sickening that a person can sexually molest, assault and abuse an entire church full of women and get away with such little time in prison," said Tara Silva, 22. "He's completely ruined my life. I can't sleep at night. I have panic attacks now. I have nightmares all the time."
After reading through the case history, I think its time to vote in new leadership at the DA’s office.
Carfrey is a serial abuser. It is feared he will just pick up where he left off. What’s to stop him?
"Think about this: He did this in another state, moved to the state of Arizona, did it again to more women, and more teenage girls, and he's getting four years? No, it's just not going to fly with me," she said. "As soon as he gets out of prison, he's going to move to another state and do the same (expletive) all over again."
How can anyone trust the clergy?
