Notes:  Ribaudo was placed on leave and then “retired” in 2002 after allegation that he had molested Fr. Michael Hands as a high school student. Fr. Hands went on to become a priest and in 2002 pleaded guilty to abusing a teenage boy. Hands claimed that a church official offered him cash if he promised to keep quiet about charges against Ribaudo, one of Diocese’s best fund-raisers. Ribaudo, Priest O in the Grand Jury Report, admitted in therapy that he had abused “at least 12 boys.”
