Paul Lauricella comments about the Philly sportswriter Bill Conlin sex abuse scandal; “Victims come forward because its the right thing to do.” “They don’t have to hide in shame.” “Nobody did anything at the time.”
Bill Conlin died at the age of 79 in January 2014.
“Conlin was a longtime baseball writer and columnist for the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin and Philadelphia Daily News. His distinguished career ended just before Christmas 2011 after the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that three women and a man alleged he had molested them in the ’70s, when the accusers were children. One of the women making the allegations—a prosecutor in Atlantic City—was Conlin’s niece. In the next few days, other alleged victims came forward.”
“The bombshell allegations came a little more than one month after the Jerry Sandusky child-sex abuse scandal had first rocked Penn State. Conlin was never charged with a crime because the statute of limitations on the allegations had long expired.”
