Cardinal Mahony Deposed to Answer Questions Relating to His Knowledge of Sexual Abuse within the Church

Cardinal Roger Mahony was deposed for several hours to gather information regarding the childhood sexual abuse that has occurred in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, focusing in particular on Father Michael Baker, Father Baker’s abuse of three parishioners, and the attempts made to keep pertinent information secret. Father Baker, who is now serving a sentence in prison, claims to have disclosed his past to Mahony when he began working with the diocese.
