Philippines to deport American Catholic priest wanted for sex crimes

American Roman Catholic priest Rev. Kenneth Bernard Hendricks was accused of sexually assaulting altar boys in a church in the Philippines in a case one official described as

Calling the case "shocking and appalling", the Philippines' Bureau of Immigration spokesperson Dana Krizia Sandoval said of Hendricks, "his presence is a threat to the safety of our children".

Kenneth Bernard Hendricks, 77, was taken into custody Wednesday on the central island of Biliran after serving as a priest for 37 years in the predominantly Catholic Philippines.

Hendricks had previously lived in OH but was not ordained a priest until he left the U.S.

Bureau of Immigration spokeswoman Dana Sandoval said Thursday that the Rev. Kenneth Bernard Hendricks, who has been indicted in OH for alleged illicit sexual conduct in the Philippines, was arrested in a church in Naval on the island province of Biliran.

Kenneth Bernard Hendricks, 71, who has been living in Barangay Talustusan in Naval for nearly four decades, was arrested on the strength of a warrant issued by the US District Court of OH last November 30 for sexual abuse complaints.

The arrest comes less than one month after US agents in the Philippines first heard about the allegations against Hendricks, who is now being held by the Philippines' Bureau of Immigration. He says one victim reported more than 40 sexual encounters with the priest.

"The victims were in his house and the abuses were committed while he was taking a bath with each of them", Sandoval said by telephone.

Cohen was paid for this work through some money laundering methods to hide the political purposes behind the payments. Prosecutors urged Pauley to hit Cohen with a $500,000 fine and forfeit his assets in addition to the prison sentence.

Sandoval said immigration officials received information from United States authorities about Hendricks' activities. The priest allegedly warned the victims that if they told anyone they would all go to prison.

Glassman urged other victims to come forward.

The Filipino agency says the US embassy is "reportedly processing the revocation of Hendricks' passport to help facilitate his immediate deportation".

"If he has a pending court case in the Philippines, we will be able to deport him once his case is resolved and if sentenced, he has to serve time", she added.

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati listed Mr Kendricks as a "missionary in Asia" on its website, but later issued a statement saying he "is not, nor has ever been, a priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati".

"People in the community could not believe the allegations as he was known as a good priest".

Hendricks has been active in the Catholic Church for more than 60 years, Francis said, mentioning assignments in Cincinnati and several locations in the Philippines.
