Abuse victims want statewide AG probe of California Catholic Church

Abuse victims want statewide AG probe of California Catholic Church

They also urge police and prosecutors at local levels to "be more aggressive"

Roughly 500 priests in the state have been accused of hurting kids, but statistics indicate there should be 2000 or more

The San Diego Diocese recently admitted it hid files on at least 8 clergymen – including a man who is still running religious retreats out of Sacramento

At least one accused priest was shuffled out of California and first publicly identified in the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report

Another clergyman with multiple allegations in the Keystone State was moved to California and worked for years in parishes in this state

“Law enforcement must do more,” survivors group says, “if children are to be better protected”
