The D.A.'s office wrote a report

Did you see the L.A. Times article (click on this post's title) last Wednesday about a May 26 three-page report from the L.A. District Attorney's office on the L.A. clergy abuse scandals?

The Times article says:

"In its eight-year investigation of sexual abuse by clergymen, Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley's office has found information suggesting possible 'criminal culpability' by leaders of the Los Angeles Catholic Archdiocese, but lacks enough evidence to bring charges, according to a memorandum released Tuesday...

"The document, written by the prosecutor who heads the investigation, William Hodgman, says statutes of limitations make the 'prospect of developing any criminal case' against archdiocese officials 'more and more remote with each passing day'...

"Archdiocese spokesman Tod Tamberg said in an e-mail that 'any suggestion of criminal conduct is totally false and without factual basis.'"

Cooley, by the way, is a candidate in the primary election this Tuesday. He wants to be the Republican nominee for California attorney general.

RealClearPolitics ran an AP article that was reporting on the L.A. Times article. The AP story is at: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/news/ap/us_news/2010/Jun/02/da__insufficient_evidence_found_to_charge_cardinal.html

Let's keep praying for our Archdiocese.
