Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Ms. Ann Marie Hanes (Strall):
Ms. Ann Marie Hanes (Strall) was a former lay employee who worked in the Diocese of Erie. According to media reports, in April 2019, the Diocese of Erie announced that it had received an allegation of sexual abuse against Ann Marie Hanes (Strall). No further details or information, such as the age or gender of the victim, the nature of the misconduct alleged, or her affiliation was released. The Diocese of Erie’s internal review board found the allegation against Hanes credible, and updated its Public Disclosure List of those involved in the Catholic church sexual abuse scandal.
Hers was one of four laypersons added to the list which contains the names of persons who have been “credibly accused of actions that, in the diocese’s judgment, disqualify them from working with children.” Allegations were corroborated by secular legal proceedings, canon law proceedings, self-admission by the individual, or threshold evidence (as defined in the Child Protection Policy).
Ms. Hanes (Strall) now reportedly lives in Spokane, Washington.
