NEW: Catholic Dioceses in New York Subpoenaed In Sex Abuse Investigation



A report released early Thursday afternoon said that the Catholic Dioceses in New York have been subpoenaed in a probe regarding sexual abuse among clergy.

“New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood has subpoenaed all eight Roman Catholic dioceses in the state as part of an investigation into the handling of sex abuse allegations,” said News12 Long Islandciting AP.

According to the report, authorities are seeking documents related to sexual abuse, payments to victims, and internal investigations and findings made by the church.

“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.

It has been a rocky two months from the embattled Catholic Church, whose clergy members have been credibly accused of sexual abuse on multiple occasions, while Pope Francis has been accused of covering for the sexual abusers.

Big League Politics reported:

At the end of July, more than 300 “predator priests” were named in a redacted Pennsylvania Supreme Court report. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of the Archdiocese of Washington D.C. resigned at nearly the same time after being outed as a sexual deviant. Finally, an Archbishop recently claimed that Pope Francis knew about McCarrick’s abuses and covered for him.

On Tuesday, reports surfaced that two gay priests were caught performing sex acts in a car in Miami, FL.
