Octogenarian and boys choir organizer John Shallenberger has been in the news in Pittsburgh for years. He is a wealthy businessman, convicted twice for child molestation. In August 1998, a Pennsylvania judge issued an arrest warrant for Shallenberger on a contempt of court charge. The judge ruled that he violated a court order prohibiting him from recruiting youth for trips abroad. Reporters found that Shallenberger had place classified ads in alumni newsletters at his alma maters.
