Youth Director Julian Heyman arrested

JulianHeyman Youth Director Julian Sheppard Heyman III has been arrested on charges he molested two girls. I know it is atypical for a catholic to molest girls, as youth director he had access to a broader range of children. It is a sad truth. Who can you trust anymore?

Barbara King, spokeswoman for the Savannah Diocese, said Heyman was employed as director of youth ministries from July 1988 to October 1999 and resigned his position to further his post-graduate education.

"Our Diocese encompasses 80 parishes in southeast Georgia," King said. "He was in charge of coordinating youth leaders for each parish and developing activities for youth and young adults.

The alleged abuse occurred between 1997 and 1998.

Ehsanipoor said two victims reported to sheriff's investigators about two weeks ago they were molested as far back as 1997 and 1998, during the time Heyman was employed with the Diocese.

Both victims were under 10 years of age when the crimes occurred. Under 10… how am I supposed to even write about this crap? It makes me sick.
