The Philadelphia District Attorney is announcing today that Fr. Robert L. Brennan has been arrested for sex abuse.
We commend the Philadelphia District Attorney for its tireless pursuit in bringing these sexual predators to justice.   We are proud of the brave survivor who came forward to press charges against Fr. Robert L. Brennan.  Some of our clients who were abused by Fr. Brennan were not able to see justice done in the criminal courts because of the statute of limitations; however, they are grateful to know that other brave survivors are willing to come forward to prevent Fr. Brennan from continuing to harm other children and that the Philadelphia District Attorneys Office persists in seeking justice for child sex abuse victims.
The Philadelphia Grand Jury Reports and the trial of Monsignor Lynn revealed that the Archdiocese was aware of Brennan’s predatory behavior as early as 1988 and that Monsignor Lynn knew this full well during his tenure and did nothing to protect children.
