Retired priest gets 15 years for child sex crimes Judgment day came Monday for the Rev. Neil Doherty, a retired South Florida priest accused by several men of sexually abusing them in their youth, when a Broward judge sentenced Doherty to 15 years in state prison for the repeated sexual assault of a child in the mid to late 1990s. Doherty, 69, appeared frail as he stood hunched and shackled before Circuit Judge Kenneth Gillespie, who announced that he had delivered maximum sentence I can impose under the terms of a plea bargain that the disgraced Catholic priest accepted earlier this month in Broward Circuit Court. But Doherty did have to face two of his accusers, who were not the victims in the criminal case but testified in open court about the traumatic sexual abuse that Doherty had visited upon them decades ago.

He added that Doherty is resigned to accept his fate, and does not interact with others in jail. a hopelessness about him, Brannon said. Dennis Siegel, the assistant state attorney prosecuting the case, established that Doherty had lied repeatedly in the past about his alcoholism, his depression and his health problems. Siegel also elicited agreement from Brannon that Doherty primary sexual interest remains young teens, and that the priest has control issues.

As part of the plea deal, prosecutors reduced the two charges of sexual battery on a child capital felonies punishable by up to life in prison to lewd or lascivious acts upon a child, which are second degree felonies and carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison each. Prosecutors also dropped the charges of molestation. By pleading no contest, Doherty maintains his innocence but assumes the penalty of a conviction. He will receive credit for the 842 days he has spent in a Broward jail as of Monday.
