Sick! Catholic Priest Accused Of Molestation And Solicitation To Commit Murder

| Filed under: Sad Sad


This makes us ill!

Rev. John M. Fiala was arrested and thrown in jail on Tuesday after he was charged with one count of criminal solicitation to commit capital murder and two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The most disturbing part was that Fiala was out on bond from sexual assault charges involving the boy, who is now 18, when he offered an undercover agent with the Texas Department of Public Safety $5,000 to kill the teen.


"This guy," said Edwards County Sheriff Don Letsinger, "is an evil man."

According to the teen's lawyer, Tom Rhodes, he met Fiala. The priest started "grooming him," and buying him gifts including a computer and a car. When the boy was 16, Fiala "gained access to him and began to sexually abuse him once or twice a month, including on church grounds," under the guise of providing private catechism lessons.

Not only did the priest threatened to kill the boy if he told anyone, but texted them to him everyday. Fiala also threatened to kill himself claiming they would "go to heaven together." He also raped the boy at gunpoint.

When Fiala was convicted, he was removed from active ministry in October 2008, but he still got out of jail and tried to flee to Kansas. He was caught after a witness heard that he was plotting to murder the young man and went to police.

"He's still very afraid, but he is hoping that this time Fiala will stay behind bars," Rhodes said of his client.

Letsinger added:

"I think he's cooked his goose now. We know that pedophiles sometimes threaten their victims to keep them quiet. But this is kind of an older victim, and you wonder sometimes why they wouldn't come forward. … I can see now the evil in this guy is pretty bad."

Lock him up and throw away the key!

    this is so awful, but i was just wondering, are you sure it was a catholic preist? It's just because you said his name was Rev. John M. Fiala and catholic priests dont have the designation of Rev. those are protestants and other religions that have that designation.

    What a surprise. A Catholic priest who wants to rape children, that never happens… oh wait a minute.

  8. 8

    Many dark entities hide within organized religions, lots of greed,power and fear there to feed off.

    Does he think there's a special loophole for clergy in 'Thou Shalt Not Kill?'

  11. 11

    He's a typical Palin suporter.

  12. 12

    EX-priest, get your facts right before making such a bold headline.

  13. 13

    the sherriff says he "can see now" that the guy is evil? Like, after raping a kid he wasnt bad enough to keep locked up - they let him out on bond to commit more crimes. No bond for pedophiles, or parole.

    Wait Wait … You just said a Catholic Priest … then continued to state "Rev." … Reverends are protestant, not Catholic. Catholics can't be reverends, but fathers. You're an idiot, Perez. And I laugh at the commenters who didn't catch that and flame the Catholic church. I myself find this sickening, whether Priest or Reverend. But at least get the facts right.

    I like to think that this animal was a pedifile disguised as a priest, pastor, or Reverend.

  16. 16

    Just to clarify, this is a Christian pastor, not a Roman Catholic priest.
    Besides that, it's a classic example of bad people doing bad things…it's not the institution- it's the person.

  17. 17

    This is bullshit - either you have the name wrong or this person is not a Catholic priest, they are designated "Father" not "Reverend." I'm sick of people automatically assuming that a religious molestation claim means a Catholic Priest. Just like gay people must be irritated that many people think that if you're homosexual than you must be a sexual deviant or paedophile.

    Thank GOD we still have the Death Penalty in Texas!!! This would be a good cause to use it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, they propably won't.

  20. 20

    Actually…pedophilia is when people molest children younger than 10 years old. This is actually a case of a homosexual abusing a young man…so stop trying to make all religious people look bad Perez…when in reality he is just your type regardless of his religious affiliations!!

  21. 21

    Perez I love your site but PLEASE get your facts right. This is not a Catholic Priest. No Catholic Priest will ever go by Rev., they are fathers. Reverend and Pastors are for Christian while Catholics will be Fathers or Brothers. It is offense that you assume a religious head that has molested a child must be Catholic

  22. 22

    Kill IT (the Priest) with FIRE! x[

  23. 23

    Apparently for all these deeds, Pope Benedict is ready to make him a saint.

  24. 24

    Who cares, if he a catholic, reverends, or whatever! He molestated this boy(s)..This creep should be lock up for the rest of his life..I hate people who are like this!

  25. 25

    Re: DexterM – Yes! He is certainly a perfect choice. Can't wait for his pending doom.

  26. 26

    If you all took a second to research…….he was an ex priest that became a Reverend. So Perez wasn't wrong. He was a priest. At one time. Poor kid, that man should be castrated.

    Actually, Catholic priests outside of the United States are addressed as Reverend. When addressing Monsignor you use Most Reverend, Bishops and Arch Bishops you use Excellency, and for the Pope you use your Holliness. Most people still address Priests as Father so and so, but that is the correct way to address them.
