Excerpt from “Lawyers accuse Saginaw priest of lying about witnessing the destruction of documents related to sexual assault cover up,” by Brad Devereaux, MLive, February 29, 2012.
“William Winning of the law firm Cozen and O’Connor that represents Rev. Cistone said it is important to realize that his client is not being charged and that the judge denied the court filing that mentions Cistone soon after it was presented.
Cistone has not been subpoenaed to appear as a witness, Winning said. If he is subpoenaed, he will appear in court and continue to cooperate with authorities as he has done throughout the case, Winning said.
“If he is subpoenaed, he will gladly come to Philadelphia,” Winning said. “In my view and the view of others, he has done nothing wrong.”
