Michigan catholic priest, Vincent DeLorenzo, sentenced to only one year in prison for raping a 5 year old child at a funeral for the victim’s family member

Michigan catholic priest, Vincent DeLorenzo, has been sentenced to only one year in prison for raping a 5 year old child at a funeral for the victim’s family member.

The assault happened in 1987. 

In exchange for his guilty plea, the remaining charges will be dismissed.

Those charges related to the sexual assault of a child from 1995 to 2000, while he was a student at Holy Redeemer School and Church in Burton. 

Delorenzo was living in Florida when was charged with four other priests in May 2019. A former Flint-area Catholic priest convicted of the attempted sexual abuse of a 5-year-old boy in the late 1980s, was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail and probation.

Vincent DeLorenzo, 84, was sentenced June 13 by Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Brian S. Pickell after previously pleading guilty to a single count of attempted first-degree criminal sexual conduct, a five-year felony. The sentence followed the framework of the plea, which called for five years probation and one year incarceration at the Genesee County Jail.

“As terribly damaging, harmful and traumatic as all sexual abuse is, (abuse) involving child victims is even more devastating,” Pickell said.

DeLorenzo chose not to speak prior to being sentence.

“Justice did come for the victims in this case,” his attorney, Michael Manley, said. While the crime occurred more than 10 years ago, Michigan's statute of limitations did not apply in this case.   

Delorenzo's sentencing has been scheduled for June 13. Under his his plea agreement, it is expected that he will be sentenced to 5 years' probation, the first year to be served in the Genesee County Jail.
