Sexual abuse panel on March 2
On Feb. 27, two long-awaited reports were made public regarding the clergy sexual abuse scandal in the Church - the first prepared by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the second from the National Review Board.
The John Jay Report focused on the nature and scope of sexual abuse cases by Catholic clergy. The Review Board's report will outline the Church's response to incidents of sexual abuse by priests and religious.
On Tuesday, March 2, from noon - 1:30 p.m., in Mayer Theater, the University will host a panel to discuss these reports. The panel will include: Thomas Smolich, S.J., Jesuit Provincial; Thomas Plante, professor of psychology; and Victoria Brown, Assistant District Attorney for Santa Clara County. Bishop P.J. McGrath of the Diocese of San Jose is scheduled to attend.
