child sex abuse
A minister is taking his own denomination to task, claiming in a lawsuit that the Presbyterian Church was partly responsible for sexual abuse he suffered as a teenager.
It’s the civil case of Father Joseph Jiang, accused of wrongdoing with a young girl in Lincoln County.
Defense attorney Ken Chackes says he stands by Jane Doe 92 and her allegations that she was raped by Father Ross.
A 22-year-old woman identified as Jane Doe had accused Joseph Ross of molesting her as a small girl between 1997 and 2001.
It would have been the second child sexual abuse case against the St. Louis Archdiocese to make it to trial.
Officials with the Giddings Lovejoy Presbytery say they consider child sex abuse allegations made in 2012 against former pastor Michael Walker Jackson credible.
A former Catholic priest was sentenced to two concurrent 12-year sentences for molesting three teenage boys in Missouri.
The Archdiocese says that Archbishop Carlson’s responses were taken out of context, and the media misreported the incident.
St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson says he’s ‘not sure’ if he knew it was a crime for an adult to engage in sex with a child.
Archbishop Robert Carlson says he never went to authorities after that priest admitted in 1984 that he engaged in criminal sexual contact with a minor.
