Cleric Sex Allegations
1/25/2013
 
 
 
 A Franciscan Brother accused of sexually abusing former Bishop McCort students while he worked there in the 90's.  Friday we talked with District Attorney Kelly Callihan to see where this case could go if it falls into her hands.  Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan says her office has started looking into the allegations against Brother Stephen Baker.  But when it comes to prosecuting Callihan says it could be difficult.  She says from 2007 till now her office is able to prosecute any offense against a minor until they turn 50.  But from 2002 until 2007 she is only able to prosecute a felony until the alleged victim turns 30.  And a misdemeanor until they turn 20 and when you go back even further before 2002 Callihan says she is stuck with the original statute.  But she still urges any alleged victims to come forward just in case.
