McCandless was a known threat OVER 10 YEARS AGO!
The Rev. William McCandless — a member of the Wilmington-based religious order Oblates of St. Frances De Sales — first came to to the attention of U.S. authorities after a stash of illicit photos and videos was discovered while he was stationed in the tiny nation on the French Riviera and working as an adviser to Princess Charlene, the wife of Monaco’s royal sovereign, Prince Albert II.2
Last year 3 bills were filed to keep students safe from sexual predators3 after William Ushler, director of upper school admissions at Tower Hill School, was fired after being arrested on five counts of child pornography.
Within a week after Ushler’s arrest, Darin Albright, a Milford School District custodian, was charged with three counts of dealing in child pornography after being reported by Twitter.
