Clergy Abuse Claims Against Sacramento Area Priests

Clergy abuse is a topic that many fail to address, including some religious institutions. Those who are sexually assaulted often shy away from reporting it for a variety of reasons. However, one man, identified only as John Doe, has come forward in Sacramento to speak about an unmentionable crime in the mid-1980s. Then a 17-year-old, he was abused by a local cleric. Afterward, he, just as many others, said nothing about it to anyone. In the years since, he said he has struggled with the effects of what happened. After counseling, he was able to directly challenge the cleric. Today, in a formal statement, he is asking that the priest in question come forward and admit what he has done.

Surviving Serious Auburn Accident Injuries

Most people don’t expect to ever be involved in a serious crash. While it’s true that it is unlikely that you will be injured in an auto accident on any given commute or trip to the grocery store, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s data shows that over 5 million crashes occur in the United States every year. These car accidents cause an average of over 30,000 fatalities and over 2 million injuries, many of which drastically affect people’s lives. Crash injuries can cause chronic health issues, leave people with permanent disabilities, and saddle survivors with financial difficulties. Recovering after a crash can be a difficult process, but there are a few ways to make recovery easier.
