Charges Brought Against Father Philip Jacobs

Canada: A Catholic priest formerly of Columbus, OH, who was removed for molesting boys in the early 9os, was arrested in Canada for...wait for it...molesting boys.  Who would have guessed?

Father Phillip Jacobs, 60, is in custody in British Columbia where he was arrested earlier this week while disembarking a flight from California. Jacobs is facing charges of sexual assault, sexual interference and sexual exploitation.


  1. any updates on this case???

  2. He was released on $25,000 bail on August 6th.

    It sounds like more and more people are coming forward, police continue to receive information about the former priest.

    The diocese in Columbus, Ohio – where Jacobs served until being removed in 1993 – says 10 credible allegations have come in against the priest from his days working in Ohio.

    Next court date: 10 November 2010 (Victoria, BC) (six court dates prior to this).

    No word yet on any convictions but it looks like they are building an airtight case against him.
