Diocese lists credible sex abuse allegation against late Berkshire County priest
The Diocese of Springfield in Massachusetts, which serves Berkshire County, is listing what they say is a credible sexual abuse allegation.
The Berkshire Eagle reports he served three parishes over the course of 15 years in Berkshire County.
It was years after his death in 1987 that a credible allegation surfaced that he had sexually abused a minor.
The diocese changed its policy to include priests who had died before abuse allegations were made.
