Stephen Brady: ‘I’m confident the truth will come out’

The finding of “credible” homosexual abuse allegations against California priest Msgr. Craig Harrison by local law enforcement not only discredits the priest’s defamation suit against a whistleblower, says an attorney, it also opens the priest up to a counter lawsuit.

According to attorney Paul Jonna, Friday’s statement by the Fresno County district attorney (D.A.) regarding the existence of credible allegations against Harrison undermines the priest’s defamation lawsuit against Jonna’s client, Stephen Brady, and Brady’s organization, Roman Catholic Faithful (RCF).

On Tuesday Jonna told media, “Because the Fresno DA has now found ‘credible’ allegations of sexual abuse on the part of Harrison, there is no way he can maintain a defamation case against Brady and RCF.”
