When Priest or Clergy Abuse Happens
There are so many children and young adults who endure abuse or harassment by clergy, as parishioners or workers for the church. The inappropriate behavior can include vield sexual comments, sexual innuendos, unwanted sexual actions, or other statements that are distressing and unlawful. The parishioner may be asked by their priest or clergy to engage in certain sexual acts privately, talk about their body parts, and/or discuss partaking in sexual activity.
Whether verbal or physical, these crimes are serious and parents must seriously consider filing a civil lawsuit against the offender and the church entity. If you are an adult who suffered sexual abuse at the church as a child, you may still be able to pursue legal action despite it occurring years beforehand.
