Pa. grand jury report about sexual abuse by priests should be released

Morning Call

June 28, 2018

Letter to the Editor by Robert T. Corby Sr.

I am a victim of sexual abuse by a priest in 1948. I am now 83 years old. A lot of victims, including myself, testified before the Pennsylvania grand jury looking into sexual abuse in the state’s Catholic dioceses.

Some traveled great distances to testify over the past two years. The grand jury report was to come out — all the victims only want accountability from the Catholic Church for the cover-up all these years — and it is hard to believe the state Supreme Court didn’t release the report.

Whose side is the Supreme Court siding with — the Catholic Church or the victims? Certainly not the victims. I am so disappointed in the ruling of the Supreme Court.
