Family Sues Archdiocese in Sex Abuse Scandal

The My Fox Philly
November 13, 2013


The family of an alleged sexual abuse survivor is filing suit against the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

Sean McIlmail's family filed charges against father Robert Brennan last September, but prosecutors dropped them after McIlmail died of a drug overdose in October.

The family claims the Archdiocese knew of the numerous sex abuse allegations against Brennan and is demanding justice for Sean.

In a 2005 Grand Jury report on priest abuse in the Philadelphia archdiocese, Brennan was described as an alleged serial abuser.
