Recent Findings Have Uncovered Widespread Abuse by Catholic Church Clergy in Maryland
The Catholic Church was the target of an investigation by the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. The findings were that the Archdiocese of Baltimore exposed hundreds of minors to sexual abuse by more than 150 priests.
These findings bring into question how many survivors of abuse by Catholic Church clergy have not gotten the justice they deserve.
