Convene a Grand Jury to Investigate Archdiocese of Baltimore

As the Archdiocese of Baltimore will not be responding to the request of tens of thousands of people, this petition now requests that Baltimore Attorney General Brian Frosh convene a grand jury to investigate the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

This request comes in light of the recent grand jury report from Pennsylvania, which detailed the alleged abuse of more than 1,000 children by hundreds of priests in six Pennsylvania dioceses.

The Archdiocese of Baltimore holds documents regarding sexual abuse claims against A. Joseph Maskell. The release of these documents will restore public trust in the Archdiocese, and confirm the Archdiocese statements regarding their handling of the sexual abuse claims.

This petition requests that the Archdiocese of Baltimore release their files regarding A. Joseph Maskell, who is now deceased, in an effort to throughly investigate all avenues that may have led to the murder of Cathy Cesnik in 1969.
