Archdiocese issues statement on laicized priest

A woman filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of St. Louis Oct. 24 claiming to have been abused by Joseph Ross, a laicized priest of the archdiocese. According to a statement from the archdiocese, the plaintiff in the civil case is the same person who brought criminal charges against Ross for abuse reportedly occurring in 1998-2000 when Ross was the pastor at St. Cronan Parish in south St. Louis. These charges were subsequently dropped by the circuit attorney for the City of St. Louis in August 2010.
