Child Sex Abuse Case Settled against Priest Living in Wisconsin
By John Pilmaier
April 11, 2012
Today an attorney has announced that he has settled a child sex abuse claim involving a Catholic priest now living in Manitowoc Wisconsin. The accused cleric is Fr. Glenn Davidowich. The attorney who reached the settlement is Mitchell Garabedian.
Davidowich worked at Catholic churches in Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Davidowich was also the founder of an organization known as the Junior Pro Wrestling Association (JPWA) which produced and sold videos of teenage boys in sexually suggestive poses. The JPWA website featured pictures of boys in swimming briefs, some wearing dog collars and chains.
We continue to be disappointed that the truth about pedophile priests is still hidden by Catholic officials and that credible allegations against child molesting clerics are still not disclosed by church officials. We hope that anyone who may have seen, suspected, or suffered crimes by Fr. Glenn Davidowich will come forward, get help, and start recovering.
