Episcopal bishop calls for 'disciplinary proceedings' in St. George's School sex abuse case

From Rhode Island-

The Episcopal bishop of Rhode Island is calling for "appropriate disciplinary proceedings" against three people named in recent reports of sexual abuse at St. George's School in Middletown in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Rt. Rev. W. Nicholas Knisely said in a statement Tuesday that he is in contact with Rhode Island State Police, "and I am following their direction as the investigation is being carried out" into the episodes discussed in a report issued by the school in December and in media coverage.

"As of this morning, two Episcopal priests and a third person who has worked in Episcopal congregations have been named in the report or ensuing media coverage," Bishop Knisely wrote in a letter to clergy released shortly after a Boston news conference about sexual abuse at the elite private school.
