To the Catholic Sentinel:

I am livid after reading that the Archdiocese of Portland is funding Rev. Angel Perez’s attorney costs.  It is bad enough that he has admitted being a pedophile, but the Church is giving money for the top defense attorney in Portland. 

I am at a loss for words to try to figure out why he wasn’t assigned a court-appointed attorney. 

I do not want my hard-earned money to be funding the defense of an accused pedophile.
