-- waiting months to oust a school principal who faced a criminal child sex probe, and
In 2006, Mahony's spokesman Tod Tamberg told the LA Times that law enforcement officials asked church officials not to tell parents about a child sex abuse probe into a prominent parochial school principal. The next day, however, the district attorney's office and Los Angeles Police Department said they made no such request.
The principal, John Joseph Malburg of Daniel Murphy Catholic High School, was later arrested, charged and fired. But because of the church officials' months-long secrecy and delay, Malburg was able to keep videotaping an unsuspecting boy in the shower for two months, according to a criminal complaint.
SNAP believes the case is one of several that prove that the LA archdiocese has not reformed. The group wants Mahony to publicly explain and apologize for his staff's deceit and delay.
