Catholic Diocese of Las Cruces Cooperating With AG’s Office on Sexual Abuse Claims

THE DIOCESE OF LAS CRUCES IS REACTING TO ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE MADE AGAINST PRIESTS. DARRELL MOODY HAS THE DETAILS…

THE DIOCESE…PROVIDING THE NAMES OF MORE THAN TWO DOZEN PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS WHO HAVE CREDIBLY BEEN ACCUSED OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT WITH MINERS TO THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE FOR INVESTIGATION. ALL 28 HAVE SERVED WITHIN THE GEOGRAPHICAL BOUNDARY OF THE DIOCESE. THE ALLEGATIONS DATE BACK AS FAR AS THE 1950’S UP UNTIL 2002, WHEN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ENACTED ITS CHARTER FOR THE PROETECTION OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE. IF YOU BELIEVE YOU WERE A VICTIM, YOU’RE ENCOURAGED TO CONTACT MARGARITA MARTINEZ BY SENDING TO MMARTINEZ@RCDLC.ORG.
