The Prosecution Rests in Philadelphia
Posted by Voice of the Faithful in Clergy Sexual Abuse, Voice of the Faithful on May 18, 2012
The prosecution in the trial of Philadelphia Msgr. William Lynn, the first Roman Catholic Church official charged with child endangerment for covering up clergy sexual abuse, rested its case yesterday. The trial judge has dismissed one of two conspiracy charges against Lynn, but left intact the other conspiracy charge and two child endangerment charges. The New York Times has been covering the trial and posted on its website this story, Prosecution Rests Case Against Philadelphia Monsignor Accused of Abuse Cover-up, which wraps up the prosecution’s case.
