The family of a child photographed by a priest will receive $600,00 from a Catholic diocese in Missouri as the result of an agreement reached with the diocese earlier this week.
The parents sued the diocese and the priest in federal court in 2011. A lawyer for the girl and her family said the child was about two years old when Reverend Shawn Ratigan took sexually explicit photos on her in 2006.
Ratigan was charged with taking explicit photographs of at least five girls, ages 2 to 12, from 2005 until his arrest in spring 2011. Images of naked children were found on his laptop computer, according to court documents. Ratigan later pleaded guilty in the case and is now in custody awaiting sentencing.
45-year-old David Greenberg of Flagstaff, AZ was sentenced yesterday to 340 years in prison for surreptitious videotaping and extensive downloading of what police called “graphic, gut-wrenching, stomach-turning content” of children being sexually abused.
Greenburg, a former science researcher and doctoral student at Northern Arizona University, was arrested trespassing at a home. Investigators suspected from his statements that he was a predator. Police reported they found so much pornography that they decided to not look at most of it because it would take a detective one year of full-time work to review it all.
Before sentencing, Greenburg told the court that he never really threatened anyone because he never touched any of the victims. The prosecutor responded that each time a person views an image or video of a child being abused, that child is victimized again.
Greenburg’s sentence was the normal one prescribed by Arizona state law.
