Paedophile priest kept on for years

Jurors in a landmark US church sex-abuse trial were presented yesterday with the career of a priest who was convicted on child porn charges yet remained in ministry for years.

Prosecutors introduced decades of documents from the Philadelphia archdiocese’s secret archives that outlined how Edward DePaoli, after being convicted in 1986, went through psychological treatment and half a dozen church assignments before he was defrocked in 2005.

DePaoli is not a defendant in the trial, but prosecutors are building a case against Monsignor William Lynn, the archdiocese’s secretary of clergy from 1992 to 2004, who was entrusted with investigating complaints against priests.

Lynn is the first Roman Catholic official in the US charged with endangering children by allegedly keeping paedophile priests in parish work around children to protect the church’s reputation. His lawyers say he tried to address the abuse allegations but was thwarted by his superiors.
