I used to find Fr. Corapi unbearable. I thought he was one of the worst aspects of EWTN - a brand of American "Trad" Catholic that often comes across as overbearing, OTT and annoying. Then I decided to listen to him. I heard him speaking about an experience he had (not mystical in case you are wondering) with the Blessed Sacrament. It was about reverence for the "particles". I agree with him and I was moved by his devotion and his courage (he was "shipped out" as they say for his behaviour). Given this and his clear and reasoned defence of the Faith (I now believe he is excellent and possibly one of the greatest defenders of the Faith of this time), I cannot believe the accusations made against him (see here). The enemy will attack those who are involved in the work of the salvation of souls. I pray for him and hope that he will soon be able to leave his administrative leave.
On his website he asks questions about the way accused priests are treated. I agree with him. I know of two cases of real doubt where priests were left "on leave", two cases of gross injustice with regard to cases thousands of miles apart. In one case the bishop's actions should have been grounds for a serious inquiry. I cannot say any more except that I was involved in one case as a "sounding-board" for one priest. I believed he was innocent. I still believe this. Sadly, by the time he got to me he was an emotional wreck. Yes, we must be severe and apply strong safeguards, but we should not allow ourselves to fall into the mistake of accepting "collateral damage" in the shape of innocent priests whose lives and health may then be wrecked.
