The same students of the Alassio institute who were with him helped the priest. The bishop has suspended the priest
A priest overdosed on cocaine while he was taking some Ollandini middle school boys to Alassio on a trip to Cremona. The story took place in June, but only now has news been reported. To assist the priest were the same boys whose custody he had. The priest was taken to the hospital where the agents of the Mobile team rushed to question him. The priest was reported to the prefecture for possession of narcotics for personal use and in these days he is starting a re-education course with the staff of the prefecture's Drug Addiction Unit.
Already a parish priest in the hinterland of Diano Marina, the priest who was the protagonist of the story had already reached the headlines a few years ago because in Loano he had groped a girl he had met on the street. The bishop of Albenga Imperia, Monsignor Guglielmo Borghetti, promptly intervened on the matter, suspending the priest from his post, including teaching (in Alassio he taught music). The priest began a rehabilitation program: he will soon go to one of the recovery facilities for priests operating in Italy.
