What should I do if my priest sexually abused me?

If you are abused by a priest, then you should contact a sex abuse attorney. A lawyer who handles sex abuse cases is a person that can give you your options, can give you advice. If the case happened years ago you can find out whether or not you can still bring a claim. If it happened recently, and then you’re within a statute of limitations, then you can bring a claim and hold the perpetrator, and if appropriate, the institution accountable. But you won’t know that unless you speak to a lawyer, but even before you contact the lawyer, you may if it hasn’t been reported contact the authorities, because it’s a crime, and it should be reported.
