The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
FT. LAUDERDALE MEDIA ADVISORY FOR JANUARY 28
Priest Arrested for Raping a Young Boy
Attorney To Give Documents Proving Earlier Allegations Against Cleric
The Archdiocese of Miami received multiple credible allegations of sexual abuse by Father Neil Doherty dating back to the 1970's. In 1992, the Archdiocese confidentially settled a case in which Father Doherty was accused of molesting a minor. Nevertheless, Father Doherty was still the pastor at St. Vincent in Margate in 1995-96 when he met the victim.
Documents showing the Archdiocese's knowledge of allegations of abuse against Father Doherty dating back to the 1970's will be distributed at the press conference.
