Description
 
Report of a Pennsylvania statewide investigating grand jury which determined that hundreds of children were sexually abused over a period of at least 40 years by at least 50 priests or religious leaders assigned to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown. Evidence and testimony reviewed by the grand jury also revealed a troubling history of superiors within the diocese taking action to conceal the child abuse in a secret archive as part of an effort to protect the institutionäó»s image. The grand jury stressed that this conduct endangered thousands of children and allowed proven child predators to abuse additional victims. The grand jury made recommendations, such as abolishing the statute of limitations for sexual offenses against minors and urging the state General Assembly to suspend the civil statute of limitations on sexual abuse claims. It also urged victims of crimes, such as child abuse, to report criminal activity to law enforcement. This is a print on demand report.
