Nov 29, 2010: Media Alert: Shocked Victim to Speak Publicly for First Time Says Archbishop’s spiteful actions are hurtful to him and his family

At a new conference, a suburban Twin Cities man who was sexually abused as a

Archbishop John Nienstedt’s recent legal action attempting to make victim pay

defending the priest’s sexual abuse and Archbishop Nienstedt’s subsequent
attempts to cover-up Adamson’s two decades long sexual predatory misconduct.
