Another accuser

Today's L.A. Times has a story (click on this post's title) about a man, 54, who has been making claims of sex abuse 40 years ago against Bishop Tod Brown of the Diocese of Orange. Bishop Brown has denied the charges in the past and continues to deny them.

The story says this:

"Ryan Lilyengren, a spokesman for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, said the allegations had been thoroughly investigated and were found not credible by church officials and law enforcement, and that Brown had been thoroughly questioned about the allegation under oath.

"According to a statement released by the diocese Friday, 'Bishop Brown was cross-examined extensively regarding this issue by an adversarial lawyer in the presence of a judge with a certified court reporter and fully answered all appropriate questions. The transcript has been made available to the public.'"
