Boonville — A preliminary hearing for a former Boonville priest suspected in several sexual assaults has been rescheduled for Nov. 8.

Gerald Howard appeared in the 18th Circuit Court for Cooper County Monday for a scheduled hearing.
Columbia attorney Chris Slusher is representing Howard. He said he asked for the continuance because he is in the process of collecting depositions from witnesses around the country.

Howard once worked as a priest at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Boonville.

Howard, also known as Carmine Sita, faces charges of three counts of forcible sodomy, three counts of attempted forcible sodomy and two counts of kidnapping.

This is a dangerous manipulative predator priest. As long as he is kept in jail, kids are safe.

..but this delay causes anguish to his victims.

Also, if there is anyone who has information about crimes committed by this priest, please contact law enforcement.

There is help and healing for anyone who has been sexually abused by clergy.
