L.A. prosecutors to review Catholic Church files for crimes
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors will review internal priest personnel files kept by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles that show retired Cardinal Roger Mahony and other top church officials worked to shield molester priests.
District attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said in an emailed statement Tuesday that the office will "evaluate all documents as they become available to us."
Thousands of pages of confidential records from the files of 14 priests accused of sex abuse were made public Monday.
The documents show how the church handled abuse allegations for decades and provide the strongest evidence to date that Cardinal Mahony, who was archbishop of Los Angeles, and a top aide consulted about how to handle molester priests and protect the archdiocese from scandal.
Cardinal Mahony issued an apology Monday.
Dozens more priest files soon will become public under a 2007 settlement agreement.
