This story is triggered off by the Cincinnati Archbishop's unusual reaction to the national sex abuse that rocked the Catholic Church. WCPO's investigation reveals the Cincinnati/Dayton area Catholic Church's longtime cover-up of sexual abuse by priests, and holds accountable its leader for the past twenty years, Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk. Driven by an interview with the Archbishop, the first story in this 3-part series details the church's failure to protect children from pedophile priests. The second story reveals how Archdiocese leaders routinely ignore credible complaints about priests who commit crimes and endanger students. The third story highlights some of the measures many Catholics believe might be the solution.
