Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. is currently representing the plaintiff in a clergy
sexual abuse case who is alleging that a former priest sexually abused
a former 12-year-old why he was an altar boy. According to court documents,
the abuse occurred in the 1970s in Floresville.
As the case has progressed, Tom Rhodes and our legal team have worked diligently
to hold the priest and the clergy accountable for the abuse and subsequent
cover up. The lawsuit filed claims that Louis Paul White was the priest
in question. An associated pastor at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, White
was defrocked in 1989. The lawsuit also alleges that the San Antonio Archdiocese
covered up the offenses and permitted White to serve as a pastor at other churches.
The trial has since been delayed since the initial filing, and jury selection
has been set for October 8th due to a lack of availability of courtrooms, Tom Rhodes reported to the
media. As of not the archdiocese has not commented on the lawsuit and
pending trial, but the case has garnered international attention.
