    • Abstract:
      On January 6, 2002, the Boston Globe ran the first of what would be hundreds of news stories detailing sexual abuse by Roman Catholic clergy. The initial story, “Church Allowed Abuse by Priest for Years,” focused on John Geoghan, a Catholic priest defrocked in 1998, whose eighty-six known victims accused him of molesting them. Some of his acts dated back more than three decades.
