Father Jerold Lindner always pitched his tent far from everyone else on religious camping trips in the Santa Cruz Mountains. That way, his accusers later said, no one could hear his young victims whimper.

But more than 30 years later, one of those accusers is striking back -- in a rare way chosen by only one of the 16,000 Americans who are known to have been sexually molested by Catholic clerics. Will Lynch, who says he was raped by the man he knew as Father Jerry on a camping trip in the mid-1970s, is accused of beating up the priest -- and he is now using his own assault trial to try the cleric in the court of public opinion.

When it becomes impossible to have justice and law at the same time, I choose justice over law.

Facebook page for William Lynch legal defense fund:

And here's the website for the legal defense fund: http://www.williamlynchlegaldefensefund.com/

Mark Geragos's firm is representing Lynch. There's been a ton of publicity about this case in the last couple of days.

A grand jury in Texas has just decided NOT TO CHARGE the man who killed the man who was sexually abusing his daughter.

So why is Will Lynch on trial in California?

New development: the judge sent the jury home until Monday with no explanation. The prosecutors are looking distressed. The Mercury news hypothesizes that because Father Lindner lied on the stand yesterday, Lynch's lawyers may have filed a motion to dismiss because he perjured himself.

One of Lindner's victims screams "Rapist" at him in the courthouse as he passes by causing a huge commotion. Lindner's niece, whom he also molested was also at court today:

The rule of law is admissable evidence, only. That leaves no room for that thing called justice.

Give that kid a medal!
