Times-Tribune reports today that Bishop Bambera has appointed a new superintendent for
schools in the Diocese of Scranton. The appointment comes nearly three
months after the former diocesan superintendent was fired amid allegations
of sexual abuse.
The allegations made news last January when the DA confirmed he was looking
into abuse claims, though the statute of limitations for the alleged crimes
had already expired.
The public may never know what happened in this case, but the allegations
of sexual abuse will change the life of the accused forever, even if they
are not true. I do not say this to undermine the tragic impact sexual
abuse has on its victims or to imply in any way that victims should not
be trusted. However, for the sake of justice, we must remember that untruthful
people who make false accusations for selfish purposes do exist. Innocent
people can be accused, and even convicted, of sex crimes.
If you have been accused of a
sex crime, then you cannot afford to leave your future in the hands of anyone but
an experienced, proven Scranton sex crimes attorney whom you can trust.
