9 Catholic Priests Accused Of Child Sexual Abuse In US
The United States published a report that provides evidence that nine additional Catholic priests sexually abused children from the 1950s to the 1990s in Colorado Catholic churches.
The report was published by Attorney General Phil Weiser, according to ABC.
The late Rev. Charles B. Woodrich, known as Woody's father, and the other eight people were not previously identified in the original report, released in October 2019, based on a review of Church records in the dioceses of Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo.
Six of the newly named priests have already died, while others have previously been removed from the priesthood or have ceased worship. Woody's father was named after Woody's father a few years after his death in 1991, but his name was removed from the name earlier this year due to allegations against the priest.
The latest report looked at cases of abuse of 46 children by a total of 25 priests, 16 of whom were named in last year's report. Grounded allegations of sexual assault were made against them. A total of 212 children were found to have been abused by 52 diocesan priests between 1950 and 1999.
Both reviews, conducted by former U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer, did not address alleged abuses by priests from religious orders or those who came from other dioceses.
The investigation began after a Pennsylvania grand jury announced in 2018 that more than 300 priests had corrupted at least 1,000 children over 70 years, raising doubts about the extent of abuse in other states.
The Church established and funded a reparations program to provide benefits to people who have been mistreated by priests. It was managed by Kenneth Feinberg and Camilla Biros, who oversaw the payment of compensation to the victims of the 2012 Aurora Theater shootings and the 9/11 attacks.
According to the final report, the program allowed $ 7.3 million to be paid out to 79 people.

In the USA, the crew of the helicopter discovered in the desert a mysterious metal monolith
Bureau staff were on a helicopter on November 18, helping the Wildlife Resource Department keep track of cattle when they spotted an unusual object.
They landed next to it and found it to be a metal monolith set into the ground, about three or three and a half meters high.
It is illegal to install anything, including art objects, on federal soil without permission, "no matter what planet you are from."
The bureau stressed that they do not provide the exact coordinates of the object, since it is in a very remote area and attempts to visit it are likely to end in a rescue operation.
