Priests in San Francisco Bay Area That Are Reported As Known Abusers
More details on the abuse of underage victims by San Francisco, California, pastors, clergy, and church officials
While there’s no way to know just how many San Francisco, 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 several shocking statistics in reports on the issue:
- Dioceses and religious orders so far have revealed more than 5,100 clergy members are involved to various degrees
- 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
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.”
The Shield Justice Watch team believes that the young victims of San Francisco, California clergy and institutional abuse should have the right to face these abusers in a court of law and get compensation.
San Francisco, California, victims and their families are encouraged to file court cases requesting compensation because many of these San Francisco catholic religious institutional leaders were aware of these rampant abuses and elected not to report them to authorities.
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, with perpetrators going unnoticed in order to save the reputation of the Church and avoid legal processes.
Many of the adults responsible were hidden from identification and, once their crimes came to light, were passed on to areas such as San Francisco, California, only to repeat their abuses over and over again.
Those victims that were abused by these San Francisco, California, institutions are now encouraged to request a free, private case evaluation by a qualified attorney on the Shield Justice Watch team, with the potential to file a claim that could include compensation.
Now is the proper time to take action because:
- The statute of limitations have been lifted in many cases
- Many victims are given the opportunity to tell their stories
- Church and organization leadership are more ready to reveal abusers
Our network of attorneys are ready to support you.
