Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney Continues to Represent Survivors of Abuse

Former Greenwich Connecticut Priest Named in Victims' Group Petition

Bishop Frank Caggiano has agreed to meet with representatives of national and local victim support groups who Wednesday called for him to hire an outside firm to investigate two priests who have been accused in the past of sex abuse -- including a prominent former Greenwich pastor who has admitted he hid more than 40 years of abuse complaints. But Barbara Blaine, president of the Chicago-based Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, said although she is willing to meet with Caggiano, she would prefer to do so after he agrees to the investigation.

Mike McQueary, the former Penn State quarterback and Nittany Lions assistant football coach who was a key prosecution witness in Jerry Sandusky's criminal trial, confided to players that he was a victim of sexual abuse, according to a new ESPN The Magazine report.

Sex Allegations Follow Monsignor Martin Ryan to Stratford Connecticut Parish

Two and a half years after he was removed as pastor of a New Fairfield church for allegedly sexually harassing a female church employee, Monsignor Martin Ryan was appointed pastor of a Stratford Roman Catholic church. Ryan's appointment Saturday at Our Lady of Grace Church prompted numerous calls from parishioners who said they were shocked to learn that their new spiritual leader was a priest who not only had been removed from a prior job, but had previously been accused of molesting a teenage girl in Trumbull in the 1970s. In that case, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport agreed to pay a settlement to the complainant, even though Ryan denied the allegations.

Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney Sues Bethel Connecticut Walnut Hill Community Church for Sex Claims

A Bethel church has been accused in a lawsuit of turning a blind eye to sexual assaults on young girls by its former youth minister. In the lawsuit filed Tuesday in stateSuperior Court in Danbury, the family of a girl says leaders of the Walnut Hill Community Church allowed Matthew Anastasia to be in a position where he could get close to girls even though he had been arrested for harming one. "The minor plaintiff and her family looked to the church as a safe place to worship and find spiritual peace and instead a 13-year-old girl was deceived and harmed," said lawyer Cindy Robinson, with the Bridgeport law firm Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney, who is representing the family. Church officials did not immediately return calls and emails for comment. Anastasia's mother, Janice, is the Children's Ministry Team coordinator for Walnut Hill, and his father, James, had served as a church elder. Both are named as defendants.
