Catholic high school baseball coach opts for trial on sex crimes charges

April 9, 2012

By Shannon McDonald

The South Philadelphia high school baseball coach accused of sexual and moral corruption is seeking a trial.

Louis Spadaccini was charged last Fall with with corrupting the morals of a minor, simple assault, furnishing alcohol to a minor and rape. He’s being accused of serving alcohol to and engaging in sex acts with boys he coached at Ss. John Neumann and Maria Goretti High School.

The Daily News reports Spadaccini has opted not to plead guilty, despite being expected to do so today. A Chester County judge will preside over the trial because Spadaccini was a Philadelphia court employee up until his arrest.

About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.
