Jeopardy

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 21, 2003

I'll take Always Our Children for 10,000.

In what is believed to be the nation's first criminal conviction of a Catholic diocese, Archbishop Daniel E. Pilarczyk on Thursday pleaded no contest to charges the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati failed to report child sexual abuse by priests.

Judge Richard Niehaus of Hamilton County Common Pleas Court found the archdiocese guilty of five misdemeanor counts of failure to report a felony and imposed the maximum fine of $10,000. The counts covered incidents on "indeterminate dates" from 1978 to 1982.
