Catholic Priests in Bakersfield, California, Are Finally Being Held Accountable For Abuse


Instead of keeping them safe, thousands of young boys and girls suffered horrible abuses from persons in positions of authority such as Bakersfield church priests.

And because so many of these institutional and organizational leaders were aware of these abuses and opted not to report them to authorities, Bakersfield victims and their families are eligible to file cases in court for compensation.

Reports have revealed that over 6,800 members of the Bakersfield Catholic Church have been accused of mental, physical, sexual, and emotional abuse to their younger members dating back several decades.

Many of those adults responsible were hidden from identification and passed on to Bakersfield, California, left to repeat their abuses over and over again against young victims and their families.

Those victims that were abused by these Bakersfield, California, institutions are urged to come forward for a free, private case evaluation by a qualified attorney, with the potential to file a claim for justice that could include compensation.

  • Many victims are given the opportunity to tell their stories
  • Church and organization leadership are more ready to reveal abusers
  • The statute of limitations have been lifted in many cases

More on the unreported abuse of young victims by Bakersfield, California, priests


Thousands of boys and girls report terrible abuses at the hands of the Bakersfield priests they should be able to trust–abuses that went largely unreported for decades or more.

The result is a shocking collection of physical and sexual abuses in Bakersfield that went largely unreported for decades or more–and, that are just now coming to light.

Reports from NBC News have revealed some of the following shocking statistics:

  • Religious organizations have revealed more than 5,100 clergy members that have been accused of abuse
  • Hundreds of those on the list still hold positions of trust with access to children–with 76 suspects who could not be located
  • Almost 1,700 priests and other clergy members now live with with little or zero oversight from law enforcement
  • The AP began researching nearly 2,000 suspects who remain alive to determine their whereabouts

According to the Washington Post: “Sexual abuse is notoriously under-reported, especially when the victims are children unaware, or not fully cognizant, that what they have experienced is a crime.”

We believe that the young boy and girl victims of Bakersfield, California priests and institutional abuse and their families should have the right to face these abusers and get compensation and justice.
