Kansas City, MO - A Kansas City attorney is calling for grand jury-style investigations into Catholic priest abuses in the region following the bombshell revelations in a grand jury report identifying predator priest in Pennsylvania.

Rebecca Randles has represented numerous victims in priest sexual abuse lawsuits. She spoke to reporters at a news conference along with four of her clients who claim they were sexually abused by priests in both Kansas and Missouri.


The men and Randles are calling on the Attorneys General in both states to open investigations like the one in Pennsylvania.

"If there is any request for information from any law enforcement we'll give it, including a grand jury," said Jack Smith, spokesman for the Kansas City-St Joseph Diocese. "We're not trying to hide anything. We want to be completely transparent. We want victims to have justice."
