• In March 1999 an 11-year-old female Sacred Heart sixth grader told her teacher that Valdez had put his hand on her groin during confession in Dec. 1998. The girl told her mother while "crying hysterically" about the incident she said had occurred the previous December. Per a police report, several other girls in the class also said they didn't want to go to Valdez for confession.
Parish had a school with 307-301 students, and a religious education program with 600 students.
Sr Lynne, who was the girl's teacher, and the school principal, Sr. Paulette Tiefenbrunn, humiliated the girl in front of the class, downplayed the incident to child protective services, and told students not to tell anyone.
The girl's family sued the diocese in Dec. 1999, resulting in a settlement.
