Archbishop suspends 3 priests Pilarczyk admits regrets in handling abuse crisis By Dan Horn The Cincinnati Enquirer Cincinnati Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk says his decision to suspend three priests Monday closes one of the most difficult and painful chapters of the clergy sexual abuse crisis in Southwest Ohio. In his most extensive comments about the crisis in months, Pilarczyk said he regrets that it took so long to remove priests who had admitted abusing children nearly two decades ago. He also acknowledged that, in hindsight, he might have handled some of the sexual abuse cases differently. But despite demands from his critics, the 69-year-old archbishop said he does not see many significant reforms ahead for his administration or his archdiocese. "I think we have learned better how to handle this," Pilarczyk said Monday in an interview. "I don't believe there is any specific undertaking we could do now. People are looking for good priestly min Ashcroft issues get-tough policy By Jane Prendergast The Cincinnati Enquirer As U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft spoke Monday in Cincinnati about a reduction in crime and a lack of major terrorist incidents since Sept IL 2001, he was making larger news on the national stage with his promise that federal prosecutors will be tougher and more consistent with terrorists and other criminals. As he spoke in Cincinnati, it was revealed that Ashcroft ordered federal prosecutors to pursue maximum criminal charges and sentences whenever possible and to seek lesser penalties through plea bargains only in limited circumstances. An Ashcroft memo sent to all 94 U.S. attorneys' offices Monday supersedes policy during former Attorney General Janet Reno's tenure that allowed prosecutors greater individual discretion to determine if the charges and potential punishment fit the crime. TCTD Mill FINAL NEWS 50 CENTS IT istry, and I think that is where the answer is." He said church leaders already have done a great deal to improve the way they respond to child abuse allegations. In the past year alone, he said, the archdiocese has updated its Child Protection Decree, revamped the Child Protection Review Board and implemented the new rules approved by U.S. bishops at their Dallas conference last year. First among those new rules is the "zero-tolerance policy" that requires the removal of all priests accused of abuse, including the three priests suspended Monday. Those priests - Thomas Brunner, David Kelley and Daniel Pater - were placed on paid administrative leave after the archdiocese's Child Protection Review Board found evidence that they abused children nearly two decades ago. The move means the archdiocese now has formally sus- See PRIESTS, Page AS At his Cincinnati speech, Ashcroft addressed Greater Cincinnati law-enforcement officials invited to the speech at the Aronoff Center for the Arts downtown. Thirty of them sat behind Ashcroft as he thanked them for fighting violent crime and helping in the war on terror. As a half-dozen protesters walked outside holding signs that criticized the Patriot Act as a way to violate citizens' rights, Ashcroft called it crucial to breaking down barriers and improving communication among federal agencies fighting terrorists. "We didn't seek this struggle,'' Ashcroft said. "But we embrace this cause." The 2001 Patriot Act significantly increased the surveillance and investigative powers of law enforcement agencies, tightened control over immigrants and expanded government access to business and other records that could be linked to terrorism.
