Priest, teacher convicted in Pa. church abuse case
Question of the Day
District Attorney Seth Williams decided to charge Lynn, the former secretary for clergy at the archdiocese, with child endangerment because Avery had been transferred to the boy’s parish even though he admitted to church officials that he had abused a boy previously.
Lynn was convicted in the landmark case in June and is serving three to six years in prison. He is appealing his conviction.
In September, Kansas City Bishop Robert Finn was convicted of a misdemeanor for failing to report a priest known to possess child pornography.
The victims’ advocacy group Bishopaccountability.org recently began posting the secret church documents aired at the Lynn trial. And the Archdiocese of Los Angeles was forced to make many of their secret archives public.
“The Philadelphia archive will show why statutes of limitations must be reformed in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, and why Lynn and Finn will not be the last church officials to be held accountable,” Bishopaccountability officials said.
