The Catholic Diocese of Joliet ... [cached]
The Catholic Diocese of Joliet announced Thursday that its Review Committee found "not credible" one set of sexual abuse allegations against Rev. James Burnett, the former rector of its cathedral.
But in a second case, the details of which are not yet public, the committee "has not been able to resolve the credibility of that accusation," according to a diocesan statement.
In February 2006, Burnett, then rector of Cathedral of St. Raymond in Joliet, was put on administrative leave by the diocese.He remains "out of ministry" pending the outcome of a state's attorney's review and the resolution of civil lawsuits that have or are expected to be filed against him, the statement said.
In a March 2006 letter to former parishioners, Burnett, 64, said the allegations were untrue."I am innocent of all the accusations that have been made against me, and I know that that innocence will prevail," he wrote.
Less than two months later, Dan Shanahan of Phoenix filed a civil lawsuit against the diocese, alleging Burnett abused him, starting in 1978 when Shanahan was 8 years old and attending St. Mary Catholic Church in Mokena, where Burnett was assigned for 16 years until 1990.Less than two months later, Dan Shanahan of Phoenix filed a civil lawsuit against the diocese, alleging Burnett abused him, starting in 1978 when Shanahan was 8 years old and attending St. Mary Catholic Church in Mokena, where Burnett was assigned for 16 years until 1990.
The first man, Dan Shanahan, said Burnett molested him repeatedly for four years beginning sometime around 1978, when Shanahan was 8.
Shanahan has a civil action pending against Burnett.
"During the interim and pending the outcome of the lawsuits, Father James Burnett continues to remain out of ministry," Delaney said.
