SNAP Calls on Archbishop Robert Carlson to Release Names of “Credibly Accused” Priests, Archdiocese Staffers
The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests wants Archbishop Robert Carlson to take further action, following last week’s out-of-court settlement against accused former priest Father Joseph Ross.
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.
The St. Louis Archdiocese has been granted a preliminary injunction so it won’t have to provide its employees mandatory birth control coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
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.
Pope John Paul II, along with Pope John XXIII, will be canonized at the Vatican on Sunday.
During Sunday’s ceremonies at the Vatican, Popes John Paul II and John XXIII will officially be declared saints.
No indication yet what the St. Louis Archdiocese plans to do about Friday’s deadline to adhere to the court-ordered release of clergy abuse information.
