Episode Description

For three decades, Father John Geoghan molested over 140 children, often going to the homes of poor, single mothers, gaining their trust, and then visiting their children's bedrooms at night. This is the shocking story of how the Archdiocese of Boston covered up the priest's crimes, eventually leading to the downfall of Cardinal Bernard Law, one of the most powerful men in the American Catholic Church. After conviction, while serving his sentence, an inmate strangled Geoghan to death.
