Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria Scandal

In light of the #metoo movement and the scandals regarding the Catholic Church, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria released a list of priests credibly accused of sexually assaulting children.

Many of these priests have committed multiple offenses. Some fled the country, and others were moved to new locations by the Church itself. Thousands of children have suffered at the hands of these men. Many of these children are now grown, and many may not know what to do or how to deal with the trauma that comes with sexual assault of this nature.

Many of these victims don’t get the full compensation they deserve.

Do not miss your opportunity for monetary compensation.

Jordan Merson, Founder of Merson Law, New York’s top sex abuse law firm and winner of the largest sexual assault verdict in New York State History has helped numerous sexual abuse victims of the Catholic Church receive the compensation they truly deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria:

The Diocese of Victoria is just one of 15 Roman Catholic Dioceses in Texas that released names. In total, the names of 286 priests have been disclosed.

Merson Law has provided a copy of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria’s List.

Churches across the country have begun to create programs to financially compensate victims. Most of these programs follow a similar structure, like that of the Philadelphia Archdiocese.

The church allocates a set amount to the program fund, and opens up a window of time for victims to sign up. At the end of the program, the money is divided amongst those who have signed on. Programs like this are NOT a lawsuit, and often they require you to waive your right to sue.

With the release of these names, The Diocese of Victoria is on track to begin a program of its own, especially if pressure from the public continues.

What is the Diocese of Victoria?

Taken from The Diocese of Victoria website:

“The Diocese was raised to the status of an Archdiocese on June 19, 1903. The name was changed to Victoria on September 6, 1904. It was returned to the status of a Diocese on October 1, 1908.

The largest city in our Diocese is Victoria, located at the southern end of Vancouver Island. Almost 96,000 persons in our geographic area listed themselves as Roman Catholic in the 2011 civic census; nearly 13,000 families are registered with parishes in the Diocese and of that number, 68.8% are active in their parish community.

The current Bishop is the Most Reverend Gary Gordon.”

Can I receive compensation?

If you were sexually assaulted in any way as a child by any member of the Diocese of Victoria, whether or not they were listed in the document, you can receive monetary compensation.

In many cases, victim compensation programs have their own vetting process to determine who they will accept. People often wonder if they have enough evidence, or if the church will believe them. Only you know the truth, and if you were the victim of sexual assault, we can help you to take care of the paperwork.

When will the program begin?

Time is of the essence for the Diocese of Victoria. They must act fast before massive lawsuits against them break out.

After years of letting this plague of sexual abuse run unchecked, the Catholic Church is finally cracking down on its own. Currently, the Diocese of Victoria has not announced a definitive compensation program.

As pressure from the public continues, the Catholic Church is being forced into finally addressing the scandal. It is in the Diocese of Victoria’s best interest to create a compensation program.

Additionally, there’s power in numbers. As more victims speak out, the church is left with fewer and fewer options.

Merson Law will continually update you on any news regarding Diocese of Victoria’s compensation program.

Why Should I get a Lawyer?

Victims programs often advertise that you do not need a lawyer to sign up, and that one will be provided for you when you do. This is true, but misleading. The lawyer provided to you by the church will not be YOUR lawyer. He or she works for the interest of the church, not for you, and is mostly retained for the church’s own legal protections.

Like in most legal matters, you’ll receive more compensation if you have a lawyer. Additionally, as mentioned before, victims’ programs often require you to sign away your right to sue, among other things. We do not want you to get “tricked” by the church’s lawyers. Having your own lawyer present assures you that you completely understand the process and that you do not inadvertently sign off on things you didn’t mean to.

As an experienced sexual assault lawyer, Jordan Merson understands that not everyone can afford costly lawyer fees. Despite this, it is incredibly important for victims to have proper representation in these matters. Merson takes no out of pocket fee from the client for this reason.
