Trial Continues in Sex Abuse Case
A sex abuse lawsuit against the Diocese of Yakima continues today in U.S. District Court.
A judge heard testimony from social workers and foster family of the plaintiff, who goes by John Doe.
Doe's attorneys are accusing the diocese of failing to properly screen priesthood candidate, Aaron Ramirez, before accepting him into the clergy.
Doe says Ramirez raped him in a trailer owned by the Zillah parish in 1999 -- Doe was 17 at the time.
