CWN Editor's Note: Father Gabriele Martinelli has been charged with sexual abuse; Father Enrico Radice, a minor seminary rector, has been charged with aiding and abetting the abuse. The case, dating back to 2012, was mentioned in July by Archbishop Vigano, who charged a Vatican cover-up. The student who made the original accusation against Martinelli was dismissed from the seminary, while Martinelli continued to ordination.
