Alleged Clerical Abuse Victims Decry Decision

July 23, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Alleged victims of child molestation by priests expressed outrage over the state attorney general's decision not to bring charges against any high-ranking officials of the Boston Archdiocese.

About two dozen protesters carried signs outside Atty. Gen. Thomas Reilly's office, criticizing him for what they called his "deference" to the church.

Reilly's spokeswoman said he had no comment on the protest.

Reilly is to release a report today detailing the results of an investigation into the alleged sexual abuse of children by dozens of priests. His office said earlier this week that the report did not call for criminal charges against anyone in the church hierarchy.
