Summary One of Anchorage's most charismatic priests, Father Francis Murphy, sexually abused at least about five teenage boys when he worked there. Although he admitted one case of abuse to his archbishop, he was allowed to continue working as a parish priest. Only later, when other accusations came to scene, he was sent to Boston for "alcoholism treatment".
