KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The trial of a KCK priest charged with child sexual misconduct has ended in a hung jury.
The Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office said Monday that jurors couldn’t reach a verdict in the trail of Scott Kallal.
Kallal was charged with two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child stemming from an incident involving a young girl at St. Patrick’s School in Kansas City, Kansas, in 2015.
He was placed on leave from his duties at St. Patrick’s and Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Overland Park in 2017 after police began a criminal investigation.
Genene Jones wants jury to decide whether she is competent
Convicted killer Genene Jones, the pediatric nurse known as the “Angel of Death” for fatally injecting a Kerrville child with an overdose of a powerful drug in the 1980s, is expected in court today to determine where she’s competent to go to trial on five murder charges. Jones, 69, was convicted of murder and sent to prison for 99 years for killing 15-month-old Chelsea McClellan, whom Jones injected with a fatal dose of a muscle relaxer. Jones also was sentenced to 60 years for injuring San Antonio toddler Rolando Santos, who survived a similar attempt.
The Wyandotte County District Attorney has not said whether they intend to retry Kallal.
The Survivor’s Network of those abused by Priests issued a statement saying they hope that charges will be refiled in the case.
“The charges against Fr. Scott Kallal stemmed from abuse allegations from one girl, but during the trial at least two other girls testified. The family in this case is willing to go forward with another trial and we hope that Kansas City prosecutors will follow their lead and prosecute the case a second time.”
The Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas also issued a statement saying they respect the legal process and that Kallal will continue to be on a leave of absence, which will keep him from publicly exercising in ministry.
