Richie Litigation, P.C. has filed a lawsuit against Catholic Charities, the nation’s fifth largest charity, for its employee’s repeated sexual assault and psychological exploitation of a mother of five.
Darren Richie, the lead attorney prosecuting this case, states, “I’ve prosecuted numerous cases involving sexual assault and sexual harassment, but I’ve never seen such negligence on the part of an organization as large and prominent as Catholic Charities. My client sought out Catholic Charities for emergency shelter when she was homeless and providing for five children, and as a result, was subjected to almost a year of sexual assault and abuse.
The trauma inflicted by sexual assault goes without saying, but to allow it to occur in a charitable organization that holds itself out to be a sanctuary for the impoverished is utterly despicable and inhumane. As the details of this matter are coming to light, it is becoming evident and clear that Catholic Charities knowingly hired a felon and then turned a blind eye when that felon willfully exploited, stalked, and preyed on my client when she had nowhere else to go.
The entirety of Catholic Charities’ mission is ‘to provide service to people in need, to advocate for justice in social structures, and to call the entire church and other people of good will to do the same.’
Where was the service here? Where was justice? We at Richie Litigation are making it our mission to hold Catholic Charities accountable for its blatant breach of public trust, even though nothing will ever make my client completely whole again.”
Richie Litigation is zealously committed to fighting for its clients.
