Subject: Sexual Abuse
Source: Baltimore Magazine
Date: December


Baltimore Magazine asks "Are the sexual abuse claims against Father Joseph Maskell true? Or are they just the flawed memories of former students?.... Sexual abuse by priests has rooted like a cancer within the body of the American Catholic Church, eluding most public detection until the early '80s. More than 500 priests have since been accused, prompting legal actions that have drained Catholic coffers of up to $500 million."
