Abuse by Clerics
criminal conviction of the former priests have prompted numerous
civil actions against several Catholic Archdioceses. Over 200 civil
lawsuits have already been settled for Millions of dollars. State
Attorneys General are now demanding the church to divulge the names
of suspected pedophiles. Suits have arisen in Michigan, Massachusetts,
California, New Hampshire and many other states. We believe this
is just the tip of the iceberg of abuse by priests who have preyed
upon innocent children and hidden behind a conspiracy of silence.
Black Collar Crime-
Statute of Limitations vary. In some states, child victims may bring
claims until they are 21 years of age or 3 years after the abuse,
whichever is later. In some jurisdictions the statute is shorter.
There are important exceptions however that may allow you to enter
a claim much later. In some jursidictions, victims of childhood
sexual abuse involving the rape of a minor, a criminal charge may
be brought as late as fifteen years from the date of the rape. Our
attorneys stand ready to represent young victims of clergy abuse.
