Dozens Of CA Priests Accused Of Child Sex AbuseJune 29, 2022 Christianists, Crime
San Francisco’s NBC News affiliate reports:
Dozens of Northern California Catholic priests and church employees – some still working, others retired or deceased – are being publicly accused for the first time of sexually abusing children in their care. The allegations suggest startling new depths to the decades-long scandal that continues to rock the church and its followers.
Those new accusations – and many more – have surfaced in a wave of lawsuits washing over Catholic institutions across the state, including every Northern California diocese from Fresno to Santa Rosa. Some of the new filings allege cover-ups that protected accused predators and silenced victims.
The new names are absent from internal lists of suspected abusers that most Northern California Catholic dioceses have released in recent years.
