Allegations surfaced shortly after Hasselbach was sent for therapy because another priest had found pornography in his room. He admitted abusing a 12 yr old youth in 1974 but said the youth’s version was exaggerated and he thought the youth was older than 12 or 13. Arrested 1/09 in Ft. Lauderdale FL for possession of internet child pornography. Pleaded guilty; sentenced to 2 yrs prison 1/10.
