Prosecutors in Abuse Case Search Office of Major U.S. Cardinal

posted on November 29, 2018

The Associated Press’s Nomaan Merchant reports, “Prosecutors investigating a sexual abuse case against a Houston-area priest searched the offices Wednesday of the local archdiocese, which is led by the cardinal who is heading the Roman Catholic Church’s response in the U.S. to sexual misconduct.” The investigation is raising questions about whether Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston failed to address two sexual assault accusations against Manuel La Rosa-Lopez nearly 20 years ago. Merchant writes, “Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon, whose office conducted the search Wednesday, said authorities were looking for employment records and disciplinary records related to La Rosa-Lopez, along with anything that might lead to the discovery of other potential crimes.”
