Disgraced former Catholic priest Barry McGrory skipped his sentencing at the Ottawa courthouse Monday morning.

Superior Court Justice Michelle O’Bonsawin has issued an arrest warrant for the convicted sex predator, believed to be living in Toronto.

McGrory, 85, showed no emotion back in June when the same judge found him guilty of sexually abusing two teenage boys in historic crimes dating back to the late 1960s. McGrory molested the boys in a church rectory.

Pills and marijuana found at Redskins safety Montae Nicholson's house after woman's death, warrant says

  Pills and marijuana found at Redskins safety Montae Nicholson's house after woman's death, warrant says Police found narcotics at Montae Nicholson's home after search last week following woman's death death, according to search warrant.The search warrant states that authorities executed the warrant and searched Nicholson's home in Ashburn, Virginia, on Thursday, hours after Nicholson and another man — identified in the report as Kyle Askew-Collins — dropped off Julia Crabbe in a car at Inova Emergency Room-Ashburn HealthPlex.

McGrory used his position as a parish priest to exploit vulnerable and naïve young men for his own sexual satisfaction, the judge ruled.

The now-defrocked priest used booze and drugs to groom his victims

“He infiltrated their families and used their faith in him to take advantage of the complainants,” the judge said in June.

The complainants came forward to Ottawa police in 2016 after this newspaper published a story in which McGrory admitted to sexually abusing three young parishioners at Holy Cross Parish in the 1970s and 80s.

In a May 2016 interview with reporter Andrew Duffy, McGrory said that as a young priest , he was a sex addict who suffered from a powerful attraction to adolescents. McGrory said he told then-archbishop Joseph-Aurèle Plourde about his sexual problems in the mid-1980s, and asked for treatment.

Canada gave work permit to Belgian wanted in $10M art fraud, money laundering case

  Canada gave work permit to Belgian wanted in $10M art fraud, money laundering case Canada gave work permit to Belgian wanted in $10M art fraud, money laundering caseDavid Bertiaux arrived in Canada a year ago, despite having been charged in Belgium in March 2017. Belgian authorities issued a warrant for his arrest after he failed to show up for a court hearing.

Instead of receiving help, McGrory said, he was transferred to a Toronto organization dedicated to assisting remote Catholic missions, many of them in Canada’s North. Four years after leaving Ottawa, in 1991, McGrory was charged with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old Indigenous youth. He was convicted of the crime and spared jail with a suspended sentence.

McGrory told the newspaper he was healed of his attraction to adolescents after “surrendering” himself to God, and has remained celibate.

Ottawa born and raised, McGrory was formally dismissed from the priesthood in 2018.

The convicted sex predator remains at large, and no longer has a lawyer on record for the sentencing he evaded Monday.

Loudoun County sheriff’s spokesman Kraig Troxell tells WTOP-FM that 21-year-old Julie E. Crabbe’s autopsy is pending toxicology results that could take months. An unresponsive Crabbe was hospitalized on Nov. 14. Hospital personnel initially said she was suffering from an apparent drug overdose. The Washington Post reports a search warrant made public last week says pills, marijuana and foil with residue were found in Nicholson’s Ashburn home. His lawyer, Mark Dycio, says the drugs belonged to a guest.
