Mass. prosecutors seek impounded of evidence in molestation case

SALEM, Mass. – Prosecutors hope to keep some of the evidence against an accused child molester out of the public eye to avoid embarrassing his alleged victims.

They plan to ask a judge next week to keep sealed lists and charts allegedly kept by Christopher Reardon. Reardon, who worked as a youth minister and teacher aide in several Boston suburbs in the North Shore area, has been charged with molesting 29 boys. He is in jail awaiting trial.

The evidence includes lists and charts that prosecutors say describe sexual contests and compare the size of boys’ sexual organs.
