Notorious abuser Gauthe lives as transient
April 28, 2010
The notorious Louisiana priest whose abuse of dozens of children led to the first major American clerical abuse scandal is living as a transient, thus enabling him to avoid publicizing his address. Under Texas law, registered sex offenders must list a permanent address unless they are transients.
Gilbert Gauthe-- whom the late Bishop Gerald Frey of Lafayette appointed diocesan Boy Scout chaplain despite allegations of homosexual abuse-- was released from his latest prison sentence because he previously failed to register as a sex offender.
