Valley bishop addresses criminal charges against local priest

KRGVBrian Clites, assistant professor of religious studies, discussed ongoing cases of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church. “The general sense is that cases of abuse within the Roman Catholic Church have been decreasing,” he said. “But we don’t have much data to back that up. That’s taking most dioceses on good faith for their internal reporting.”
