EVANS TELLS US WHAT TO EXPECT. REPORTER: ARTHUR PERRAULT IS DUE
BACK IN FEDERAL COURT ON
TUESDAY WHEN HE MADE HIS FIRST
APPEARANCE FRIDAY, HE LOOKED
VERY DIFFERENT THAN HE DID 26
YEARS AGO WHEN HE FIRST LEFT THE COUNTRY. THE NOW 80-YEAR-OLD PERRAULT
WALKS WITH A CANE, BUT THAT WAS
JUST ONE OF HIS AILMENTS. HERE IS A PHOTO OF PERRAULT
STEPPING OFF A PLANE IN
ALBUQUERQUE. WHILE IN COURT, PERRAULT TOLD A
JUDGE HE HAD A STROKE THREE
YEARS AGO, IS DEAF IN ONE YEAR,
HAS DIABETES, CHRONIC
HYPERTENSION, AND EVEN HAS
TROUBLE SPEAKING AND REMEMBERING THINGS. PERRAULT COULD GET LIFE IN
PRISON IF CONVICTED ON THE SIX
COUNTS OF AGGRAVATED SEXUAL
ABUSE AND ONE COUNT OF ABUSIVE
SEXUAL CONTACT HE FACES. ALL CHARGES INVOLVED A MINOR
UNDER THE AGE OF 12. THE INDICTMENT SAYS THE ABUSE
HAPPENED IN 1991 AND 1992, WHILE
PERRAULT WAS A CHAPLAIN AT
KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE. PERRAULT ALSO HAD A CIVIL
LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST HIM WHERE
A JUDGE WARDED THE VICTIM $16
MILLION. BRAD HALL IS THE ATTORNEY FOR
THAT VICTIM. >> IF WE CAN CATCH SOMEBODY,
EVEN WHEN THEY ARE 80-YEARS-OLD,
THE LEAST HE SHOULD DO IS FIVE,
OR 10, OR 15 YEARS AT THE END OF
HIS LIFE. IT IS NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT
THESE VICTIMS HAVE GONE THROUGH. REPORTER: FEDERAL AGENTS SAY IT
TOOK PATIENCE AND PERSEVERANCE
TO BRING HIM BACK FROM WHERE HE
WAS LIVING IN MOROCCO. >> THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO
DOUBTED MR. PERRAULT WOULD EVER
BE BROUGHT BACK TO NEW MEXICO TO
FACE A JUDGE AFTER EBING AWAY

WRONG FOR ONE REASON THE VICTIM
IN THIS CASE. >> —
