Priest, Pastor & Church Sex Abuse Law Library
Over the last decade, an increasing number of victims who have suffered sex abuse in a church setting have shown incredible courage by coming forward and reporting the heinous acts committed by a priest, pastor or other church member. Pedophiles who hide behind church doors and prey on innocent children must be brought to justice, both in the criminal and civil courts. Perpetrators of sex abuse as well as the institutions which protected them may be held liable. Victims of sex abuse by priests, pastors, and other church members may be entitled to financial compensation under the civil tort laws of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
