New Mexico Joins in Investigation of Sexual Abuse of Children by Priests

The Attorney General for New Mexico, Hector Balderas, has joined with other Attorney’s General who are taking a stand against child sexual abuse by priests and other clergy of the Roman Catholic Church. This is in response to a grand jury report out of Pennsylvania which shed light on 301 priests who had sexually abused more than 1,000 children over the last 40 years in that state. There was also a mass coverup of what was going on.

Although all of the victims in the report were confirmed, the investigators are certain there were many more victims, believing there to be numbers of them in the thousands.
In early September, AG Balderas sent letters to each of the three Archdioceses in New Mexico. He requested records going back almost 70 years and all three Archdioceses said they would comply with his request. According to Balderas, he has met with many families that have told him about abuses of the priests and that the numbers he’s seeing in his office or connecting with aren’t matching up to what the Catholic Church Archdioceses of New Mexico have given him so far. He wants a full investigation into the coverup along with the number of victims. Until that time, true reform and accountability won’t be possible.

The Pennsylvania Connection

The report out of Pennsylvania stated that mass coverup by church officials was rampant. Many priests, bishops, and archbishops knew what was going on and either turned a blind eye or did what they could to hide it. Some archbishops knowingly mislead law enforcement officials. One of the ways in which the higher ranking church officials hid the sexual abuse was to move a priest to another parish when the abuse was discovered. Sometimes they were sent to a recovery unit but were then moved back into their same position at another church. One place that stood out in the report of places these abusive priests were sent was New Mexico.

Why New Mexico? It may have been seen as a simple way to get the priest out of the area and into a far flung state where there was no likelihood of any of the family members or victims running into him. The answer is yet to be seen. What is known is that the coverup in some instances went all the way up to the Vatican.
