Auxiliary Bp. John Jenik allegedly abused male adolescent in 1980s
NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - A New York bishop has been credibly accused of sexual abuse.
In a pastoral letter to New York Catholics Wednesday, Cdl. Timothy Dolan announced a credible allegation of sexual abuse of a minor has been made against Auxiliary Bp. John Jenik.
The archdiocesan Lay Review Board, Cdl. Dolan reported, "has carefully examined the allegation, which concerns incidents from decades ago, and concluded that the evidence is sufficient to find the allegation credible and substantiated." He explained the allegation surfaced during the process of the archdiocesan Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (IRCP) a compensation fund set up for victims of clerical sex abuse.
Accuser Michael J. Meenan, 52, said Wednesday he first notified the archdiocese about the alleged abuse in January. He claims Jenik abused him from 1980 to 1986, beginning at age 13. Meenan said Jenik first took an interest in him during confession, and within months was taking him out to dinner and plying him with alcohol. From there, Meenan claims, Jenik began taking him for overnight stays to a house he owned in the Hudson River valley, north of the city.

Bravo Dolan has been covering for predator homosexual priests for years and I guarantee you when the Archdiocese of NYC report comes out hell be implicated big time and probably resign. The report will be 1000 times worse than the Philadelphia report.
