Sex abuse: Omaha archdiocese defrocks one priest, sentences another to "a life of prayer and penance"
Rev. Alfred J. Salanitro, 54, has been returned to the lay state and cannot ever serve as a priest again. Rev. Franklin A. Dvorak, 69, will be allowed to retired next February and has been sentenced to a life of prayer and penance, whatever that means. The archdiocese has reported the allegations which resulted in its investigation to civil authorities, but the reports, even if required by law, will mean little, as the statue of limitations has run out on those offenses the diocese has reported.
