Canadian pastor and convicted pedophile Patrick Marini (71) was arrested on a charge of attempted kidnapping. He apparently tried to lure a young boy out of a public Library.
Patrick Marini, 71, has been charged with attempted kidnapping of a person under 14 and breach after an incident involving a boy at the Clearbrook Library at 32320 George Ferguson Way on Tuesday morning, said Const. Ian MacDonald.
A 12-year-old boy seated alone at the library was approached a number of times by a man over the space of an hour starting at 9:45 a.m., said MacDonald.
The suspect tried to convince the boy to leave the library with him.
"He offered the young man repeated inducements in an attempt to get the boy to leave," said MacDonald.
Of course, if the state had actually put this pedophile behind bars on his original conviction, we would not be talking about this now.
Marini was sentenced to an 18-month conditional sentence on March 13, 2013 after pleading guilty to a charge of sex assault involving a 15-year-old boy in February 2012.
He was also handed one year's probation, registered with the national sex offender registry for 10 years and ordered to not have contact with any person aged 16 or under for two and half years.
It seems like a bad call now… right?
