Diocese of GreensburgNames yet to be released.

Diocese of HarrisburgThe Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg released a list of 71 names of clergy members accused of sexually abusing children on August 1. The diocese added another name days later.
The list includes cases that date back decades. The diocese said the list includes those who were accused of abuse of a child since the 1940s, and does not include assessments of credibility or guilt.
In releasing the names last week, the diocese said it was not making an assessment of guilt. Instead, it says it was releasing a list of everyone with an allegation against them that had not been proven false.

After sending Lindner for a psychiatric evaluation, Jesuit officials claimed the allegations not credible and put Lindner back in the classroom at Loyola High School.
    • Lynch accusationIn 2002 William Lynch said he had suffered nearly three decades of irreparable emotional and psychological harm, and attempted suicide two times, because of what happened to him at the hands of then-theology student Jerold Lindner, S.J. during a 1975 church-led, family camping trip in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

My client, as well as the other victims in this case, laments the fact that this priest was never prosecuted despite overwhelming evidence,October 2010.
      1. Jesuit memoLawsuit alleges that Lindner’s pedophilia was well-known among his superiors and that they wrote a memo that said his long record of molestations going back to the 1950s should be kept “internal to the Society of Jesus.”

Jerold Lindner again, 10 May 2010. “Do you remember me?” he asked the 65-year-old Jesuit priest. “You abused me and my brother.” Then, police reports continue, the 44-year-old Lynch began punching Lindner, pummeling the older man so badly that he was hospitalized, his body covered in bruises. The beating may have been prophetic. In a 2002 interview with the Mercury News, Lynch said his rage at Lindner for molesting the Lynch brothers when they were young children was so great, “I could kill him with my bare hands.”
