Catholic Priests, Pastors or Clergy Members in Bakersfield, California, Are Being Held Accountable For Abuse
Thousands of boys and girls report terrible abuses at the hands of the church clergy, institutional leadership, and other persons in roles they should be able to trust–abuses that went largely unreported for decades or more.
Bakersfield, California, victims and their families are now eligible to file cases in court for compensation simply because many of these institutional and organizational leaders were aware of these abuses and opted not to report them to authorities.
In fact, more than 6,800 members of the Catholic Church have been accused of abuses to their young boy and girl members that date back several decades.
Many of those adults responsible were hidden from identification and passed on to Bakersfield, California, left to repeat their abuses over and over again against young victims and their families.
Those victims that were abused by these Bakersfield, California, institutions are urged to come forward for a free, private case evaluation by a qualified attorney, with the potential to file a claim for justice that could include compensation.
- Many victims are given the opportunity to tell their stories
- Church and organization leadership are more ready to reveal abusers
- The statute of limitations have been lifted in many cases
Reports paint an alarming pattern of abuse of young victims by Bakersfield, California, clergy, church officials, and other institutional leaders.
While there’s no way to know just how many Bakersfield, California, priests, monks, deacons, and lay people are accused of abusing young victims, new reports from a variety of credible sources are bringing the issue to light.
NBC News has revealed the following shocking statistics:
- The AP revealed that nearly 2,000 who remain alive to determine where they have lived and worked
- Hundreds of those on the list still hold positions of trust with access to children–and, there are 76 on that list who could not be located
- Around 1,700 priests and other clergy members are living with little to no oversight from religious authorities or law enforcement
- Dioceses and religious orders so far have revealed more than 5,100 clergy members are involved to various degrees
According to the Washington Post: “Sexual abuse is notoriously under-reported, especially when the victims are children unaware, or not fully cognizant, that what they have experienced is a crime.”
We believe that the young boy and girl victims of Bakersfield, California clergy and institutional abuse and their families should have the right to face their abusers and get the compensation and justice they deserve.
