that the Prosecutors are reviewing a claim that Bishop Michael J. Bransfield, a Philadelphia native serving as the top Catholic official in West Virginia, fondled a Lansdale Catholic High School student in the 1970s, according to interviews and court records….. bishop could still face charges because the statute of limitations on the crime froze when Bransfield moved from the Commonwealth in 1980.
"It was a fondling/groping incident, at a high school, Lansdale Catholic . . . ," Blessington said, according to the transcript of their April 19 sidebar conference outside the courtroom. "Not long after that, he leaves the jurisdiction, so we may be within the statute."
