June 26, 2013

A former Catholic priest who was convicted on sex-abuse charges has reportedly given Italian authorities the names of 20 other priests who were involved in child prostitution.

Patrizio Poggi, who spent 5 years in prison, told police that several prominent clerics, including the secretary to an Italian bishop, were involved in a pedophile ring, Italian news agencies report. Prosecutors in Rome are actively pursuing the case.
