Pastor Patrick Marini, profiled here, was found guilty of attempting to lure a 12-year-old boy out of a public library for sex. He offered the boy new shoes. What a jackass.
Patrick Marini, 71, was charged after an incident at the Abbotsford Public Library on George Ferguson Way on June 25, 2013.
The boy had been dropped off at the library by his mother, and was sitting on a couch in the children’s section reading comic books when he was approached by Marini.
The boy said Marini told him his shoes looked worn, and repeatedly invited him to go with him to buy a new pair.

The boy in this case did all the right things. Pastor Marini never had a chance.
Marini is a sex offender and is under an order not to have contact with anyone under the age of 16. I’m thinking this guy needs to spend the rest of his miserable life behind bars. He’s not going to stop going after our children.
