Attorneys Release Report on Clergy Abuse in Los Angeles

On October 2, 2018, Jeff Anderson & Associates released a report on clergy sexual abuse in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The report details the history of the Archdiocese and provides background and information on 307 perpetrators who were allowed to work in the Archdiocese. We believe this number is deficient and expect more information to come to light in the future. Of the 307, at least 37 perpetrators were allowed to flee Los Angeles once reports of abuse were known to Church officials. Even more concerning, is that the whereabouts of at least 150 are unknown and our communities and children remain at risk. It’s time for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and all Catholic bishops across California and the globe to release the files and documents on all known perpetrators. Until they do, our children remain in danger.
