Widow says Porter had changed

The Sun Chronicle

Anne Milner Porter, the woman who married pedophile ex-priest James Porter, said she will stand behind her husband as much in death as she did during the last part of his scandal-clad life.

`` I know the story nobody else needs to know. (The media) should report his death and forget about it. (There's been) enough stories on the life of James Porter,'' she said.
Porter, 70, who died Friday night in a Boston hospital, was one of the first high-profile examples of the Catholic church moving a priest accused of molesting children from parish to parish.
