USA Philadelphia: Catholic sex abuse trial starts

Prosecutors charge that Monsignor William Lynn kept dangerous priests in parish work around children.

Lynn gave the list to Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua but Bevilacqua had it shredded.

The church kept secret files that show a longstanding conspiracy to doubt sex abuse victims, protect priests and avoid scandal.

The grand juries blasted Bevilacqua and his successor, Cardinal Justin Rigali, saying they covered up child sex complaints lodged against more than 60 priests.

Lynn is on trial with Rev James Brennan, who is charged with raping a 14-year-old boy.

Defrocked priest Edward Avery entered a surprise guilty plea.

Avery admitted that he sexually assaulted a 10-year-old altar boy in a church sacristy.

Averys plea also acknowledged that the archdiocese kept him in ministry despite being aware of an earlier complaint.

Avery was sent for inpatient therapy for eight month before returning to ministry. He sexually assaulted the altar boy seven years later, he admitted on Thursday.

Lynn faces up to 28 years in jail if convicted of two counts each of conspiracy and child endangerment.
