Lawyers release papers detailing alleged abuse
BY SUSAN ABRAM, Staff Writer

Lawyers representing victims of sexual abuse released new information Sunday detailing alleged misconduct by a handful of clergy members, including a nun who slapped a girl after she accused a priest of molesting her.

The document, designed to serve as an example of priest abuse within the Los Angeles Archdiocese, listed old and new information on eight priests. Seven of them had worked in the San Fernando, San Gabriel and Antelope valleys, as well as in Ventura County. All worked in Los Angeles County at one point.

"This is a snapshot of the stories victims told and why the diocese wants to settle," said Katherine Freberg, an attorney whose law offices are representing 109 of the more than 500 people who say they were abused by priests and clergy.

In 2004, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles released the names of 211 priests and clergy accused of molesting children. Freberg's information is a result of diocese documents, police reports, and depositions taken from victims.
