My house knew, but it was because of a circle that WASN'T Catholic. A story was repeated to a member of my family. As a cultural matter, this sort of stuff remains behind the closed door of a house. We all kept our mouths shut. That priest was laicized in the Scandal and is currently in prison in another state on a matter that occurred after he was dismissed from the priesthood.
Where this is all going off the rails is the lack of keeping the details in mind, like that when a case involves the confessional, the seal must remain intact. In at least one case that's at issue right now, that's a detail. In another, the priest himself requested to be released in order to marry and started the molestation bit after he was laicized and married. It's a huge mosh pit of bits and pieces, but never the whole story. That's not fair to anyone involved.
