Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Cardinal Mahony, and ex-priest sued by a man at the center of the abuse scandal.
A 32-year-old man has filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Cardinal Roger Mahony, and an ex-priest. Mohany reassigned Michael Baker to several other Roman Catholic Parishes where he abused more boys. Many of these boys were immigrants. The lawsuit is one of the first cases filed against Mahony, formerly the Archbishop of Los Angeles. Baker has been accused of molesting 23 young boys during his decades in the priesthood. He was convicted in 2007 of abusing two boys and was sentenced to prison for ten years.
The man who filed the lawsuit was identified only as John Doe. He mentioned in the lawsuit that he was repeatedly sexually abused from the age of 6 to 10 at St. Columbkille Church in South Los Angeles. Baker had confided to Mahony in 1986 that he had molested two boys. Mahony was a well-regarded and powerful figure who led the nation’s largest archdiocese. It was the Baker case that more than any other incident led to his downfall and semi-exiled retirement.

Давайте вместе наслаждаться снежными видами Санкт-Петербурга на фото прошлого года которые мы добавлены ниже, как в память о ностальгии о зиме.
