Catholic Priests in Orange County, California, Are Being Held Accountable For Abuse
Thousands of boys and girls report terrible abuses at the hands of the church clergy, institutional leadership, and other persons in roles they should be able to trust–abuses that went largely unreported for decades or more.
Orange County, California, victims and their families are now urged to file cases in a court of law for compensation primarily because many of these Orange County institutional leaders were aware of these abuses and chose not to report them to authorities.
Over 6,800 members of the Catholic Church have been accused of abuse of young boy and girl members dating back several decades, with perpetrators going largely unnoticed just to save the reputation of the Church and avoid legal processes.
Most adults responsible were hidden from identification and passed on to areas such as Orange County, California, and left to repeat their abuses over and over again.
Victims abused by pastors and clergy of Orange County, 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.
Now is the proper time to take action because:
- Church and organization leadership are more ready to reveal abusers
- Many victims are given the opportunity to tell their stories
- The statute of limitations have been lifted in many cases
Reports demonstrate a pattern of abuse of young victims by Orange County, California, priests and church officials
While there’s no way to know just how many priests are accused of abusing young Orange County victims, new reports are bringing the issue to light and providing a better understanding of the problem.
NBC News has revealed the following shocking statistics:
- The AP revealed that nearly 2,000 who remain alive to determine where they have lived and worked
- Hundreds of those on the list still hold positions of trust with access to children–and, there are 76 on that list who could not be located
- Around 1,700 priests and other clergy members are living with little to no oversight from religious authorities or law enforcement
- Dioceses and religious orders so far have revealed more than 5,100 clergy members are involved to various degrees
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.”
The Shield Legal Online team believes that the young victims of Orange County, California priests and institutional abuse should have the right to face these abusers and get compensation.
