Notes on the offender

Some time after 2002 Abrams' "victims" reported abuse between 1979-1982 to Diocese but nothing done. No criminal charges filed. Diocese publicly announced 11/07 that Abrams' authority as priest had been permanently removed and matter was being referred to Vatican after review board found allegations credible. He was 83 yrs old at the time.
