Bishop Finn's lawyers move to exclude evidence from trial
Catholic World News - August 21, 2012
Attorneys for Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City are arguing in a Missouri court that evidence of a priest’s involvement in child pornography should be excluded from the bishop’s trial on related charges.
Bishop Finn faces a criminal trial in September on a charge of failing to report evidence of sexual abuse. The case involves the case of a priest, Father Shawn Ratigan, who has pleaded guilty to charges of child pornography.
