New sentencing date set for Fr. Thomas Graham

St. Louis Review

Sentencing for Father Thomas Graham, convicted last month of one count of sodomy on a teenage boy more than 20 years ago, has been rescheduled for Nov. 17.

Jurors recommended that he be sentenced to 20 years in prison. Judge Angela Turner Quigless will sentence him to the recommended time or a lesser amount. The archdiocese posted a $500,000 appearance bond. An appeal of the conviction is expected.
