Bathurst Catholic Diocese Accused Of Sex Abuse Cover Up
The Bathurst Catholic Diocese is being accused of a ``corporate crime.``
Lawyer Robert Talach says it covered up a sex scandal involving former priest Levi Noel.
He is currently behind bars for several sex related crimes.
Lowell Mallais says he was assaulted by Noel as a boy and it's something you can never fully recover from.
A press conference was held today where victims and lawyers representing the plaintiffs were present.
Eleven new lawsuits have been presented against the diocese.
