US child sex abuse case: Friars faulted

17 March 2016, 17:14

Hollidaysburg - Three Franciscan friars charged in Pennsylvania with allowing a suspected sexual predator to hold jobs where he allegedly molested more than 100 children, have been removed from their religious assignments in Florida and Minnesota.

Friars Robert D'Aversa, Anthony Criscitelli and Giles Schinelli are scheduled to surrender on Friday on child endangerment and conspiracy charges. They are accused of assigning or allowing Brother Stephen Baker to remain at a school where he is accused of molesting scores of students from 1992 to 2000.

Baker killed himself in 2013 when Ohio church officials announced settlements involving students allegedly molested there in the 1980s.

The friars haven't commented.
