Some people abused by priests are angry the Archbishop has not put the Archdiocese personnel director on administrative leave.

It's more reaction to I-Team reporter Laure Quinlivan's story which aired Sunday night.

Priests accused of sexual abuse are immediately put on leave. But Archdiocese Personnel Director Vincent Frasher was allowed to take vacation.

The I-Team showed you how Frasher has had a personal relationship with the man he hired to do criminal background checks on Catholic volunteers.

The man is Alex Henties, who has a long criminal record. Henties has told people, including police, that Frasher sexually abused him when he was young and that he had sexual relations with Frasher over the years in exchange for money and jobs.
