  • Well, I'm glad they caught all of him.   :wink:
    Stir up within Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the Spirit with which blessed Josaphat, Thy Martyr and Bishop, was filled, when he laid down his life for his sheep: so that, through his intercession, we too may be moved and strengthen by the same Spir

  • Self-anointed monk arrested

    By DENNIS MAGEE, dennis.magee@wcfcourier.comwcfcourier.com | Posted: Wednesday, March 21, 2012 1:16 pm

    ST. LOUIS, Mo. --- The figure some in Buchanan County knew as the Most Rev. and Lord Abbot Ryan St. Anne Scott is awaiting extradition today in the St. Louis County Jail.

    “We’ll probably go get him at the beginning of the week,” said Sgt. Scott Cordle, chief of jail operations for the Knox County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois.

    Scott, a self-anointed monk, is facing three counts of financial exploitation of an elderly person; three counts of theft and one count of deceptive practices, according to Cordle. Each charge is a felony in Illinois.

    Authorities issued the arrest warrant Feb. 29. Deputies collected Scott at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at a house on Sweet Gum Drive in St. Louis. One of Scott’s associates, Thomas Bertke, reportedly lives there.

    Bertke is also known as Brother Isaac, according to public documents. He is listed as one of the initial directors for the corporation Scott set up in Iowa called the Congregation of the Order of St. Benedict, an alleged “traditional” Roman Catholic institution.

    Scott put himself down as president of the corporation and used the entity to arrange a real estate contract with county supervisors for the former Buchanan County home near Independence. He never insured the property as required, however, and County Attorney Shawn Harden nullified the purchase agreement.
    Scott and his small group of followers abandoned the property in January just ahead of a formal eviction. He owed more than $100,000 on the former county home at the time.

    Controversy has followed Scott, whose real name is Randell Stocks, for decades. Court documents, police records and Scott’s own writings reveal a string of failed ventures and lawsuits. Catholic Church officials since the early 1990s have denounced Scott as a fraud and not a legitimately ordained priest.
    The paper trail crosses at least seven states and into Canada, and he has a felony conviction for cashing a fraudulent check while a public employee with the city of Edgerton, Wis.

    Scott filed for bankruptcy in Illinois on behalf of his corporation, the Holy Rosary Abbey, in December. He filed for personal bankruptcy in Iowa a few days later. Those cases are still pending. Scott, though, has not participated in multiple related hearings and has so far failed to file required documents as ordered by federal bankruptcy courts in Iowa and in Illinois.

    His most recent attorney, Brian Pondenis, quit because Scott was not cooperating or providing accurate information.

  • The prayer should be that God has mercy on the victims and the severe and just punishment of courts will bring Ryan Scott to his knees in repentance to beg God's and the victims' forgiveness and be moved to make full restitution.

  • A fuller article to remind us, all of us who choose not to tacitly participate in the sins of another, of the true victims of this tragic fraud.

    'Monk' faces felony charges

    By DENNIS MAGEE, dennis.magee@wcfcourier.comwcfcourier.com | Posted: Thursday, March 22, 2012 12:00 pm

    ST. LOUIS --- The man some in Buchanan County knew as the Most Rev. and Lord Abbot Ryan St. Anne Scott sits in a Missouri jail cell today. The self-anointed monk awaits extradition to Illinois on seven felony charges.
    "We'll probably go get him at the beginning of the week," Sgt. Scott Cordle, chief of jail operations for the Knox County Sheriff's Office in Illinois, said Wednesday.
    Scott is charged with three counts of financial exploitation of an elderly person, three counts of theft and one count of deceptive practices, according to Cordle. Each charge is a felony in Illinois.

    Authorities issued the arrest warrant Feb. 29. Deputies apprehended Scott at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at a house on Sweet Gum Drive in St. Louis. One of Scott's associates, Thomas Bertke, reportedly lives there.

    Cordle could not supply details behind the charges Scott faces, and Knox County State's Attorney John Pepmeyer was not available Wednesday afternoon.
    However, Sheila Anderson, one of Scott's elderly followers who left his group in Illinois, previously won a summary judgement against Scott worth $161,000.

    Anderson's attorney, Dan Deneen, in Bloomington, Ill., declined to comment on Scott's most recent legal dilemma.

    "Since the arrest involves crimes for which Sheila is the victim, it would not be appropriate for us to comment," Deneen wrote in an email to The Courier.
    According to court documents, Scott acknowledged borrowing money from Anderson to keep his Illinois corporation, the Holy Rosary Abbey, afloat. He promised to repay Anderson after selling the property in Galesburg, Ill. Federal and state courts in Illinois, however, subsequently seized control of the property.

    Scott moved his operation to Iowa, set up his second corporation and established what he called the Buchanan Abbey. According to court documents, Anderson alleged many of the items Scott's group moved to Independence were actually hers or were subject to the civil action pending in Illinois.

    Bertke is also known as Brother Isaac, according to public records. He is listed as one of the initial directors for the corporation Scott set up in Iowa called the Congregation of the Order of St. Benedict, a self-described "traditional" Roman Catholic institution. He was also a director of Scott's operation in Galesburg.
    Scott listed himself as president of the Buchanan Abbey corporation and used the entity to arrange a real estate contract with county supervisors for the former Buchanan County home near Independence. He never insured the property as required, however, and County Attorney Shawn Harden nullified the purchase agreement.

    Scott and his small group of followers abandoned the property in January just ahead of a formal eviction. He owed more than $100,000 on the former county home at the time.

    Ongoing issues

    Controversy has followed Scott, whose original name is Randell Stocks, for decades. Court documents, police records and Scott's own writings reveal a string of failed ventures and lawsuits. Catholic church officials have denounced Scott since the early 1990s multiple times as a fraud and not a legitimately ordained priest.

    The paper trail crosses at least seven states and into Canada, and he has a felony conviction for fraudulently cashing a check while he was a public employee with the city of Edgerton, Wis. He served three years probation.
    Scott filed for bankruptcy in Illinois on behalf of the Holy Rosary Abbey in December. He filed for personal bankruptcy in Iowa a few days later.
    Those cases are still pending. Scott, though, has not participated in several related hearings and has so far failed to file required documents as ordered by federal bankruptcy courts in Iowa and in Illinois.

    His most recent attorney, Brian Pondenis, quit because Scott was not cooperating or providing accurate information.

    Bankruptcy trustee Renee Hanrahan plans to auction Scott's belongings, including dozens of religious items, sometime in early April.

  • Quote from: Cupertino
    All who are looked at as being guilty just because they have been charged (but not tried yet), are also classified as victims.




    GOD will judge salvation - and yet each man must judge right from wrong - sinfulness from godliness and choose godliness.   If a man witnesses sinfulness and refuses to extricate himself from that occasion of sin - then he risks comiting sin.

    So in a lot of different ways - man does indeed have to use prudent judgement in serving GOD.

    Following a cult leader is to place oneself in an occasion of sin IMO.

  • Atlthough caught by an Illinois Court falsifying his name:


    ... Scott introduced himself at the beginning of the session as Ryan Patrich Scott.
     
    Bankruptcy trustee James Inghram, however, noted another name on the separate bankruptcy petition filed in Illinois: Fr. Ryan P. (St. Anne) Scott. Inghram pointed out a third option on a driver's license issued in Illinois: Ryan Patrich Scott Gevelinger.
     
    "Is your last name Scott or Gevelinger?" Inghram asked.
     
    "Gevelinger."
     
    Scott, however, testified he was born in Richland Center, Wis., and the name on his birth certificate is Randell Dean Stocks.
     
    "I've used Ryan Patrich Scott since the church changed it," Scott said.
     
    "Who changed it?" Inghram asked.
     
    "The Catholic church," Scott testified.
     
    "I've tried to get documentation from the church but they refused," he added.
     
    Scott testified he was raped by priests in 1977 and then sent by church officials to the Diocese of Tucson, Ariz., for counseling. He said church leaders there "changed my name in order to protect me," providing a Social Security card and drivers license. ....

    He's out, but must stay in Illinois until trial:

    Alleged Priest & Former Abbey Owner Posts Bail

    FIRST REPORTED 3:00pm 3/26/12 A condemned priest and former owner of Galesburg's Holy Rosary Abbey church bailed out of Knox County Jail Wednesday morning.

    Knox County Circuit Court officials say Reverend Ryan St. Anne Scott paid the required 10-percent of his $75,000 dollars bond, one day after being extradited from St. Louis County.

    Records indicate Scott will make his first appearance in court April 30th. Prior to bonding out Tuesday morning, he was scheduled to before a judge Tuesday afternoon via video teleconference.

    Scott was arrested in Missouri last week on a Knox County warrant charging him with three felony counts of financial exploitation of an elderly person, three counts of theft, and one count of deceptive practices.

    He's accused of borrowing large sums of money from an elderly Galesburg woman for his religious operations, without paying her back, between 2009 and last year. Reports show the Catholic Diocese of Peoria has previously labeled Scott as a "fraudulent" priest.

    Assistant State's Attorney Erik Gibson said over the weekend that bankruptcy officials were already attempting to locate Scott in Iowa.
