Michael Stephen Baker, Notorious L.A. Pedophile Priest, In Orange County Jail for Violating Probation
Michael Stephen Baker was one of the most notorious pedophile priests in Southern California history, a monster who single-handedly showed what a lying sack-o'-shot Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony was in protecting pedo-priests from the law.
Baker is now also an Orange County resident. Yay!
Once a pedophile, always a pedophile, of course, and Baker was arrested yesterday for violating the terms of his probation, according to sources. He's currently in Orange County Jail.
Baker pleaded guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court in 2007 to 12 felony counts of oral copulation with a person under the age of 18 for abusing two boys he met during the 1980s. His original sentence was 10 years, but California justice being as skewed as it is, he was released just last month.
Sources tell the Weekly that Baker was arrested for being too close to a high school--specifically St. Pius X Catholic High School in Santa Fe Springs. More details once I finish breakfast and go through a couple of meetings...in the meanwhile, heckuva job, Brownie!
