Authorities reveal charges against 2 more former priests

Two former priests associated with the Diocese of Marquette are facing criminal sexual conduct charges as part of the Department of Attorney General’s investigation into clergy sex abuse. Gary Allen Jacobs, 74 years old, and Roy Joseph, 52, both face at least one felony count of criminal sexual conduct.

Investigation may uncover ‘thousands’ of clergy abuse survivors

As the Department of Attorney General’s criminal investigation into clergy abuse has progressed, we have learned more and more about the injustices that occurred. But recent comments by the attorney general herself suggest what we’ve seen so far is only the tip of the iceberg.

How long do survivors have to file a civil lawsuit?

The full extent of the clergy sexual abuse scandal here in Michigan is still unfolding. New criminal charges, convictions and news reports suggest many survivors are still in the process of finding justice. Some of them may be wondering about the possibility of filing a civil lawsuit against their abuser, but are worried too much time has passed.

Why were hundreds of accused priests left off public lists?

It was 18 years ago when dioceses and religious orders across the country began publicly releasing the names of clergy members credibly accused of sexually abusing children. Facing increasing scrutiny, these public releases were made under the banner of disclosure and transparency, or as a condition of a settlement.
