Description

Raymond Burke, named Archbishop of St. Louis in December, 2004, managed to hide the history of sexual misconduct by three priests in his former diocese, La Crosse, Wisconsin. In one case he paid off a victim but refused to refer her case to the diocese's Child Sexual Abuse Review Board. In another case, a victim was offered a meeting with Bishop Burke regarding her alleged abuse only if she would agree to keep the matter private.This story names three priests who were abusers and who had never been publicly identified before.
