March 19, 2009

A day after Cardinal Roger Mahony took the witness stand in a Fresno clerical abuse case, Fresno Bishop John Steinbock said that the retired priest, who admitted committing abuse, posed no threat to children. Bishop Steinbock said that he could seek the laicization of Msgr. Anthony Herdegen, but “there will be no reason for me to do that, because he is in no position to harm children.”
