Excerpt from New Hampshire attorney general's report on Father Gordon MacRae

March 3, 2003

The Rev. Gerald MacRae was convicted in 1994 on five sexual assault counts stemming from his abuse of teenage boys while he was stationed at St. Bernard's parish in Keene, N.H., in the 1980s. During those years, MacRae repeatedly molested three brothers whom he first met during an earlier assignment in Marlborough. In internal diocese correspondence following MacRae's sentencing in 1994, church officials complained that the priest's prison term of 33 1/2 to 67 years was too harsh and suggested that MacRae's victims probably embellished their tales of abuse. The following pages are taken from the Report on the Investigation of the Diocese of Manchester, issued by the New Hampshire attorney general's office on March 3, 2003.
