Date: Nov. 28, 2003 - Dec 30, 2004



The Orange County Weekly investigates sexual abuse by catholic priests in the southern California region. This series that ran over a period of more than a year showed that the diocesan officials covered pedophilia by the priest and paid off some of the victims. After this spate of investigations, one Orange County dioscese fearing a public trial agreed to release personnel files on some of the priests accused of sexual misconduct as part of a $ 100 million settlement to the victims.
