Federal Court News from the Todd County Tribune

David Anthony Lee Marshall, age 50, was sentenced to 180 months of imprisonment, five years of supervised release, and a $100 assessment to the Victims Assistance Fund. Marshall was indicted for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child, Incest and two counts of Abusive Sexual Contact with a Child by a federal grand jury on March 9, 2010. The charge relates to Marshall knowingly causing a child, who had not attained the age of 12 years, to engage in sexual acts with him between 2002 and 2005 in the Horse Creek Community. Marshall was immediately turned over to the custody of the United States Marshal.

I would ask your prayers for Dave, his victim and all those whose lives have been impacted by the sexual abuse of children.

Prayer of Healing for Victims of Abuse

Praise to you, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
source of all consolation and hope.
By your Son’s dying and rising
He remains our light in every darkness,
our strength in every weakness.

Be the refuge and guardian
of all who suffer from abuse and violence.
Comfort them and send healing
for their wounds of body, soul and spirit.
Rescue them from bitterness and shame
and refresh them with your love.
Heal the brokenness in all victims of abuse
and revive the spirits of all who lament this sin.

Help us to follow Jesus in drawing good from evil, life from death.
Make us one with you in your love for justice
as we deepen our respect
for the dignity of every human life.

Giver of peace,
make us one in celebrating your praise,
both now and forever.

Amen.

+ John F. Kinney, Bishop of Saint Cloud Imprimatur


"Lead me from death to life.
From lie to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope.
From fear to trust.
Lead me from hatred to love.
From war to peace.
May peace fill our hearts, our world, & our universe,
peace, peace, peace" ~

Mother Teresa
