“His brother Tom Rodrigue was travelled down here to meet Tony when he got out of prison and he was careful to keep Tony away from kids,” said an attorney connected to the case.

The ex-priest Rodrigue “was put into a halfway house program and his brother Tom is paying for the global positioning system to keep him monitored,” the attorney said.

Margaret told me, “When I’d be in the rectory there’d be kids coming to the door asking for Father Tony."

MARGARET: It happened soon after I started work there. And he was standing in the background of where I was answering the door, I mean I just knew that this guy wasn’t supposed to see kids and here he was coming to the door and coming out and meeting them.”

I went to Father Tony and I said, you invited him and you tell him you can’t see children.

I was too young to understand even the ramifications

When I was in Coachella there was another one that I met
