Catholic Priest Abuse Case – How Many More Victims?

[Source]:

A top Manchester solicitor acting for former children abused by Catholic Priest, Father William Green, says there may be more victims yet to come forward to testify against the priest who was charged at Manchester Crown Court with 33 counts of indecent assault on boys in an around the Manchester area from the 1960’s to the mid 1980’s. He pleaded guilty to 27 counts.

Richard Scorer, a Partner with Manchester law firm, Pannone LLP and an acknowledged expert in abuse cases, said, “The judge indicated that there was an overwhelming likelihood that Green will face an immediate and significant sentence of imprisonment when he is sentenced next month. This can only be right and proper, given the dreadful abuse he subjected a succession of young boys to.”

He continued, “It is highly probable that there are a number of men still living in Manchester who are either too frightened or ashamed to come forward. I would however urge them to either contact the police or speak to me in confidence in order to bring closure to their ordeal.”
