Preist Molestation Personal Injuiry Trial set for Los Angeles

Comments Off

Southern California’s first Priest Molestation trial is scheduled to begin this Wednesday May 14, 2008.  Raymond Boucher, Lead Counsel, is prepared to deliver the opening statement for four plaintiffs who were abused by Father Titian Miani.  Father Miani had been arrested and charged with molestation but the charges were dismissed when the United States Supreme Court ruled California’s statute of limitations extension in 2001 was unconstitutional.   Boucher related to the Los Angeles times, “We selected a jury; we’re going to trial.  The Salesians are a rogue arm of the Catholic Church.  They are unrepentant, uncaring and have a culture of secrecy.”
