A Most Urgent Task

Here we go again. Last week Kathryn Post of the Religion News Service reported that yet another Christian leader has failed to respond adequately to sexual abuse:. Bishop Stewart Ruch III of the Anglican Church in North America’s Upper Midwest Diocese had known since 2019 that former lay minister Mark Rivera had been charged with felony child sexual abuse. But he did not tell people in his diocese about the abuse allegations until last month — which Ruch has called a “regrettable error.”

Life In Prison For Platteville Sex Offender

In an update from the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, a Platteville man has been found guilty of repeated sexual assault of a child. As a result of that conviction, authorities say 46-year-old Robert Ruch was sentenced to life in prison without parole. His charge included a modifier as a persistent repeater. That means Ruch committed at least three instances of 1st- or 2nd-degree sexual assault against the same child. An investigation into the assaults began in May last year. A sheriff’s report says the verdict came at the conclusion of a 2-day trial. Ruch has previous convictions of 2nd-degree sexual assault of a child in Grant County dating back to 2002.
