Priest sentenced to 50 years for lurid photographs of young girls

A federal judge in Kansas City ensured that Shawn Ratigan, the Catholic priest who used young girls to feed his obsessive lust for child pornography, never will be seen by them again. U.S. District Judge Gary Fenner followed the recommendation of federal prosecutors and sentenced the 47-year-old Ratigan to 50 years in prison. There is no parole in the federal prison system.
