Blue Springs man and alleged child molester Paul J. Cool has ignored a judge's order to stay away from the underage girls that he's accused of sexually abusing, according to the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.
Readers might remember our first report on the 49-year-old Cool. Police reports say Cool, baptized and ordained as an elder in the Vermont Mormon Church, used his status as a civilian holy man to lay hands on teenage girls and preteen relatives. He allegedly told at least one that God knew she'd done things to make an evil spirit enter her pubic area, and he had to put his own hands there to pray the beast out.
Cool was arrested for child sexual abuse on November 16 in Dekalb County, Missouri. After his arrest, Cool made his way back to Vermont, where a White River Junction district court judge freed him on December 4, providing he have no contact with his alleged victim or any girl younger than 19.
Then this week witnesses reported seeing him in St. Joseph, not far from his alleged victim. Though law enforcement was notified, Cool has not been arrested. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests claims it's sent e-mails to Vermont law enforcement about the situation, but prosecutors and police have not addressed why Cool remains free.
