DIOCESE OF LAS CRUCES NM
See the Dallas Morning News database entry on Bishop
Ricardo Ramírez. The June 2002 database examined the records
of bishops and identified those who had allowed accused priests to continue
working or had otherwise protected priests accused of sexual abuse. The
database is relevant to the bishops' "Nature and Scope" study
because the bishops who prepared the surveys for the study are in many
cases responsible for the "scope" of the problem.
