Four States Seek Sexual Abuse Records from ALL Catholic Dioceses

A massive uptick in investigations into the Catholic Church.

Four states have joined the investigation into Catholic dioceses seeking records regarding sexual abuse cases within the Church.

New Jersey officials Thursday announced the creation of a task force to investigate every Catholic diocese for “sexual abuse within the Catholic dioceses of New Jersey, and any efforts to cover up such abuse,” according to a report.

Also Thursday, New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood subpoenaed all eight Catholic dioceses within the state to look into the handling of sexual abuse allegations.

“Underwood’s office is pursuing a civil investigation into the church’s response to abuse reports and has also reached out to local prosecutors authorized to convene grand juries or pursue criminal investigations,” the report said.

Likewise, the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office is opening an investigation into all three Catholic dioceses – Santa Fe, Gallup and Las Cruces – and has subpoenaed all documents regarding potential abuse by priests.

“The Catholic Church in New Mexico needs to fully reconcile and support survivors by revealing the magnitude of sexual abuse and subsequent cover-up by church leaders in order to restore faith and trust in the community,” said AG spokesman David Carl.

Finally, Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson asked the Catholic Church for 40 years of documents related to sexual abuse cases from all three of the state’s dioceses.

Peterson requested “any information on claims of sexual exploitation — including incidents of child pornography or ‘sexual communication with another person’ — by anyone with authority to carry out church functions,” the report said.

In late August, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced an investigation into the Catholic dioceses in his state.

The massive uptick in investigations into the Catholic Church comes on the heels of an 11 page affidavit released by Archbishop of Ulpiana Carlo Viganò, former Nuncio to the United States, who blew the whistle on Pope Francis, claiming that the Pope ignored the sexual misdeeds of disgraced Cardinal Theodore McCarrick for years but failed to rectify the situation.

The Catholic Church in Pennsylvania was rocked in mid August by a grand jury report detailing credible accusations of 300 “predator priests” who allegedly abused more than 1000 victims.

Massachusetts Child Rapist Released From Jail for Coronavirus Risk

He’s free to go.

Published

on

A Massachusetts man with child rape and indecent exposure convictions is being released from jail on account of the risk he faces from the raging coronavirus epidemic. 54-year old Glenn Christie was released from the Massachusetts Treatment Center on Friday.

Christie had been previously released from prison on parole, following his conviction for repeatedly raping a 12-year old boy in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts. He was ordered back to prison after violating the terms of his parole agreement, but now he’s getting out because of the risk he faces as a result of the epidemic.

Christie had been a cellmate with an inmate who died of the coronavirus, and he apparently faces several serious preexisting conditions, according to his lawyers. The man uses a wheelchair, and has hypothyroidism, and several other possible medical conditions such as kidney disease.

In a tweet, Mr. Christie’s lawyer described the man as a “a perfect example of the sort of vulnerable person in need of release.”

Prisons and jail systems across the country- mostly on the east coast- have taken to releasing what they describe as mostly non-violent offenders to safeguard their staff and inmates. New York’s Rikers Island jail recounted releasing 300 misdemeanor offenders who were serving sentences of less than a year. Even though Christie was serving a year in the Massachusetts facility for violating the terms of his parole after initial release from prison, he wouldn’t meet the qualifications for coronavirus release used by other state and municipal corrections systems.

It’s probably safe to say that a man convicted of raping a child isn’t the kind of inmate that the public would want released in the midst of a medical pandemic.
