Minnesota Child Victims Act Year One : Court Involvement

Comments Off

The Minnesota Child Victims Act is now a year old and has two more years to go. The Minneapolis Tribune took time for the anniversary to look at how it is going. The story was interesting for its overview, but there are areas that are worth looking at a little closer.

The suits have allowed for court involvement and increased disclosure. There have been lists disclosed by 5 of the 6 diocese. There have been individual files ( that were heavily redacted) disclosed by the Archdiocese of Minneapolis and St Paul, and there have been depositions taken. In every disclosure, there have been ways to compare information and to get closer to what really happened.

Abuse of children and the continued silence by the offenders needs to be prevented. If you suffered, saw, or suspected such events, it is important to know that there is help out there.
