Description

For more than a year, reporters at the Dallas Morning News have been on a global trek in an attempt to track down a number of Catholic priests accused of sexally abusing or molesting children. This investigation looks at how priests accused of sexual assault often flee the country to take up new parishes, sometimes even with the help of Catholic church officials. In most cases, these priests are once again exposed to prolonged contact with young children, despite their criminal history. As a result of this series, the Samoan government deported one priest who arrived there after facing criminal charges in Australia, where he was later arrested.
