Colorado Clergy Sexual Abuse Lawyer

Colorado Attorneys Investigating Sexual Assault Claims Against the Roman Catholic Church Archdioceses

While no religious organization in America is immune to sexual abuse committed by clergy members, the Catholic Church has had more than their share. In recent years, victims of stepped forward to accuse Priests, Pastors, Bishops, Brothers, and Sisters of inappropriate sexual conduct with them when they were underage minors.

For decades, Catholic officials failed to protect the victim’s overwhelming sense of feeling horribly betrayed by trusted religious leaders. These heartbreaking stories have helped survivors of sexual abuse expose the misbehavior and force the Catholic Church to address the problem head-on.

Many victims who survived unspeakable sexual abuse only come forward decades after suffering in silence with physical, mental, and emotional trauma. If you were sexually assaulted or have a loved one victimized through abuse, the compassionate network of affiliate attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, LLC, can help.

Our caring team understands the pain you are feeling and the courage it takes to speak openly about what occurred. Our clergy sexual injury attorneys are here to listen to your story. We use our comprehensive knowledge of Colorado tort law and build your case to ensure that the sexual perpetrator faces their consequences for what they did.

Clergy Sexual Assault – Does it Still Happen?

Up until the 1990s, the Roman Catholic Church in Colorado purged their sexual predator records or failed to make any records of the allegations being made against religious leaders. Some files back then cloaked the allegations in understatements describing priests who raped young children as men having “boundary violations.”

In November 2019, the Denver Post noted that over 100 Catholic clergymen serving in Colorado were facing allegations of sexual abuse. The article indicated that forty-three Catholic priests had sexually assaulted more than 160 children over the last seven decades.

Lawmakers are considering extending the statute of limitations to allow survivors more time to file claims and lawsuits against the religious predators accused of sexual assault.

The Devastating Effects of Sexual Assault

Sexual assaulting anyone can cause lifelong devastation that negatively alters the victim’s well-being. Children and adults who have been sexually assaulted can suffer from significant sleeping disorders, ongoing depression, substance abuse, self-injury, and suicide, including suicidal ideation (thinking about suicide). Young children and teenage victims might develop negative eating habits, begin living an over-sexualized lifestyle, or engage in any form of risky behavior.

Colorado Roman Catholic Church Diocese
