New York child sex-abuse victims demand release of ‘secret files’ on pedophile priests

New York Post

Child sex-abuse victims are calling on the New York Attorney General’s office to release the Catholic Church’s “secret files” on predatory priests, The Post has learned.

On the heels of a bombshell Pennsylvania report on child-sex abuse by Catholic clergy, former New York AG Barbara Underwood launched a sweeping probe in September 2018.

Underwood subpoenaed all eight Catholic dioceses in New York state to explore whether churches “potentially covered up allegations of extensive sexual abuse of minors,” the office stated.

Last week, Manhattan-based Marsh Law Firm sent a letter to current AG Letitia James urging her office to release the “secret files.”

“Survivors have fought for the right to seek justice for decades, and deserve access to these files as soon as possible,” attorney Jennifer Freeman wrote to James.
