Sexual Abuse by Diocese of Joliet Hidden for Years
$2,050,000 Recovery – Sexual Abuse
Jerry Vinkler as lead counsel represented a 54-year old man that had been sexually abused and emotionally abused in 1976 by two Diocese of Joliet priests. At the time John Doe was 11 years old. Vinkler Law Offices conducted an investigation and learned the Joliet Diocese had covered up sexual abuse from the 1960’s through a pattern of hiding pedophiles and moving them aroundfrom one parish to another. The $2,050,000 settlement is the highest payment made by the Diocese of Joliet.
