Kevin J. Gray, 64, a Roman Catholic priest was arrested in Waterbury, Conn., today and charged with first-degree larceny. He is accused of having stolen $1.3 million from the Sacred Heart/Sagrado Corazon parish over the past seven years in order to spend it on male prositutes and on the kinds of things rentboys like—fancy hotels, trips and clothing.
Well at least the rentboys were of age.
But seriously now 1.3 Million? And to think I spent my 20’s giving it away.
This comes from George Alan Rekers in a statement on his own site, contradicting his own earlier statements about why he’s traveling with a rentboy named “Lucien”
“A recent article in an alternative newspaper cleverly gave false impressions of inappropriate behavior because of its misleading innuendo, incorrectly implying that Professor George Rekers used the Rentboy website to hire a prostitute to accompany him on a recent trip. Contrary to Internet stories based on this slanderous article, following medical advice Professor George Rekers requires an assistant to lift his luggage in his travels because of an ongoing condition following surgery. His family, local friends, and even another university professor colleague have offered to accompany him on trips to lift luggage. Professor Rekers was not involved in any illegal or sexual behavior with his travel assistant.”
I hope Rekers isn’t lifting the luggage there, because according to him that’s why he brought along the rent boy. But in this picture it sure looks like the kid is saying, “You carry your own luggage, AND mine, slave.”
27-year-old Saudi national Naief Al-mateiry has been acquitted after a trial during which prosecutors alleged he sexually assaulted a 69-year-old man he met outside the Townhouse, a gay bar on East 58th Street.
Al-mateiry was aquitted of kidnapping and rape brought by a 79 year-old freelance consultant who says he was beaten, held captive and repeatedly sodomized in his own west 90s apartment during a gay-date rape from hell 14 months ago. “Al-mateiry didn’t testify but his lawyer claimed he was just a gigolo and the case amounted to ‘rough sex for money between two consenting adults.'”
Both sides agree the two men met at the upscale, east side piano bar Townhouse on a winter night in 2009. The Townhouse, owned by gay nightlife mogul Bob DeBenedictis, describes itself “as a gay bar that appreciates older gentlemen of exquisite taste along with those who admire them.” (It’s a upscale hustler bar.)
