Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Fr. Joseph Driscoll:

Father Joseph Driscoll, a Redemptorist priest, was first publicly identified as an accused priest on the Diocese of Harrisburg’s August 2018 list of accused priests. The Diocese of Harrisburg did not provide any information about the nature of the misconduct alleged, nor Driscoll’s assignment at the time of the alleged abuse. All it told the public is that Driscoll was first accused of abuse after his death. The Diocese of Harrisburg did not provide any information about when Driscoll died. Horowitz Law is a law firm representing victims of sexual abuse in the Diocese of Harrisburg and throughout Pennsylvania. The Diocese of Harrisburg filed for federal bankruptcy protection in February 2020. Anyone sexually abused by a priest or employee of the Diocese of Harrisburg may be entitled to file a claim against the Diocese in these bankruptcy proceedings, but very strict filing deadlines apply. Most victims of abuse in the Diocese of Harrisburg will never be able to take action against the Diocese of Harrisburg if they miss this bankruptcy filing deadline, so it is important that you contact us immediately to discuss your potential case.
