Attorney for two brothers accusing Pfleger of abuse says CPD is looking at a fourth possible complaint.

There is a possible fourth person alleging abuse by St. Sabina’s father Michael Pfleger.

Attorney Eugene Hollander, who is representing two brother alleging abuse over 40 years ago, tells The Bruce St. James Show on WLS 890-AM, that in addition to the brothers, there is a third unnamed accuser and possibly a fourth.

“First of all, we have not just the brothers, but a third victim has come forward and said that he was sexually assaulted by Father Pfleger,” Hollander said. “Additionally, I’ve been in communication with the Chicago Police Department, a detective, who told me there is in fact a fourth victim who made a complaint to DCFS and it was turned over to the Chicago Police Department.”

Hollander adds he has no additional details about the complaint.

Meanwhile, his two clients have passed a polygraph test and those results have been submitted to the Chicago Archdiocese, which continues to investigate the allegations.

Pfleger, who has been removed from his post at St. Sabina during the investigation, maintains his innocence.
