PBS had an excellent segment on the ongoing problem with child sexual abuse in the Chicago archdiocese. The coverage was on Tuesday, January 21, 2014.

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/religion/jan-june14/abuse_01-21.html

The attorney for the plaintiffs was interviewed. His name is Jeff Anderson. He was very sharp mentally and spoke well for the victims of child sexual abuse. He didn't mince any words.

I thought it was excellent and represented some real progress that PBS would devote that time to the subject of child sexual ab use by priests.

I was abused by a Jesuit priest who was my high school counselor.
As it turns out from my attorney who handled my case told me that there were a total of 5 other students who were abused by this priest. This guy started out in Cincinnati and Columbus Ohio area. Then he was moved to Indianapolis , then moved to Illinois, then moved to California and then moved to Michigan. He was later defrocked in Michigan.

After reading the articles on the Chicago Tribune website has brought up things that have happened to me. My therapist has helped me out greatly but I upset that the remaining 35+ names of the priests will not be released.
