Church To Roll Out New Rules To Protect Children


Jay Levine

(CBS) CHICAGO The Archdiocese of Chicago is moving ahead with new guidelines to protect children from sexual abuse by priests.

CBS 2s Jay Levine reports that new safeguards are to be announced in a few days.

It is a subtle but significant shift: Acting first, asking questions later.

The upcoming policy change is guided by the only lay person to ever serve as chancellor of the Chicago Archdiocese. Hes promising an independent investigation into what went wrong.

I want a serious individual who has done this, and we are looking at some former FBI agents who have been part of the national audit company who are now doing their own thing to come and take a look at these two situations, said Archdiocese Chancellor Jimmy Lago.
