|Bishop Libasci and Bishop McCormack|
|Judge Arthur Brennan who sentenced Fr. Gordon to life and death in prison|
– issued a sentence that was in no way just or fair. Father Gordon is not eligible to apply for parole because he maintains his innocence. Thus, he must serve the entire 67 years which means he will die in prison or be 108 years old when released. He won’t live that long. He suffers from a number of illnesses, some for which he won’t take medication because the disease becomes worse when the patient has to go without the medication for weeks or even months. Because of the lackadaisical attitude of the medical personnel at the prison, and the ineptitude of the guards, a prisoner seldom gets his medication as prescribed.
