Subject: Sexual Abuse
Source: Tennessean (Nashville, Tenn.)
Date: Feb. 28-Dec. 2, 1999



The Tennessean's investigation that "started out as a story about child sex abuse by clergy became a year-long investigation of how the very entities most expected to protect the interests of Nashville's children - church, police and juvenile court -- had repeatedly failed to prevent the abuse.... (the) Roman Catholic Diocese had protected two known pedophiles who had abused children for years, then pushed them quietly from the priesthood onto an unsuspecting community - even though the law required officials to report the men."
