While many of his parishioners at Sacred Heart Church in Waterbury, CT loved Pastor Fr. Kevin Gray, none of them apparently knew that this priest actually stole $1 million from the church to fund a seven year lavish lifestyle of male escorts, expensive hotels and restaurants.
After the priest was transferred because of some unclear internal church reason, he became bitter towards the church and felt that the church "owed" him and began his seven year theft and sex campaign.
Despite a huge pile of evidence of his lavish spending with stolen funds. Many supporters of the priest showed up at the courthouse proclaiming him to be "100% innocent". Blind faith perhaps?
