Rev. William Casey pleaded not guilty

Rev. William Casey pleaded not guilty after pleading guilty to molesting Warren Tucker in a different jurisdiction. This time the prison time could be steep, so he’s opting to deny the charge – even though he acknowledges raping the Tucker in another case.

Father William "Bill" Casey, 76, is accused of forcible sodomy and indecent liberties with a minor for allegedly molesting Warren Tucker in 1978 at Natural Tunnel State Park. He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted on both counts and has a Jan. 26 trial date, according to the Scott County, Va., Commonwealth Attorney's Office.

Case is alleged to have molested Tucker more than 50 times. Now, when faced with significant prison time, he chooses to fight the charge. It says something about his character. He must have done well in his defense against prosecution course at the seminary.
