Serial child molester Steven Sitler was sentenced to life imprisonment several months ago. He served no hard time. He spent most of his incarceration in the local jail. His plea agreement says: “the volume and extent of acts by the defendant are greater than the investigator’s documentation” and “similar acts occurred in connection with minors now residing in other states.” Note the plurals. . . .
Unnoticed and unremarked, Steven Sitler walked among us for 18 months. When Doug Wilson learned of Sitler’s crimes in April of 2005, he did not warn us; he did not inform us; and, to date, he has not seen fit to apologize for failing to alert the members of his church or the larger Moscow community to the presence of this predator in our midst.
For 18 months, a serial child molester named Steven James Sitler called Moscow home. He boarded with a Christ Church family. He attended Doug Wilson’s New St. Andrews College. How did the community and members of Christ Church learn of Steven Sitler’s crimes? On a local blog and, later, on an Internet community chat group. What’s wrong with this picture? Everything. . . .
