Accused Mater Dei Statutory Rapist Loses Again
It hasn't been a good couple of months for Larry Stukenholtz, a former Mater Dei High choir director whom the school canned in the late 1990s for carrying on a relationship with a student. In October, his victim was part of a $6.685 million settlement that the Catholic Diocese of Orange reached with four girls molested by diocesan employees. Stukeholtz also lost his job as a music teacher at St. Louis Community College after its Board of Trustees unanimously voted to boot the bum out.
Now comes word that Stukeholtz failed in his attempt to have his victim pay for the legal costs associated with the October settlement. In a two-page ruling, Orange County Superior Court Judge Gail Andler wrote Stukenholtz filed his case too late for her consideration. No pithy joke here: we're just too disgusted at a creep who dares make a young woman pay for his lawyer bills after getting fired twice for his pawing.
