Alleged abuse victim wants answers from Youngstown Diocese

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Allegations of child sex abuse, is prompting a group that protects victims, to push for answers from the Youngstown Catholic Diocese.

A Youngstown man says he was repeatedly sexually molested as a child, by an "unnamed" Catholic school teacher at St. Christine's, back in 1976.

The Diocese denies his claims. On Thursday, two activists stood outside Saint Edward Church holding signs and photos of victims.

 The group sent another letter, demanding Bishop George Murry to make a statement, and make the name of the alleged predator public. ""Why hasn't he explained to his parishioners why he doesn't work there anymore. He's not doing that. That's not open and transparency.", said Judy Jones, Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.

The Diocese says the accused is no longer working in the diocese in any capacity, and that the victim's accusations were fully investigated, but could not be substantiated.
