Joliet Herald New Special on Joliet Diocesan sex abuse breaks open cover-up that has lasted for decades. “Nothing’s changed. There’s nothing that’s so alarming in 2002 that wasn’t there in 1996 or 1990. The same issues are still on the table. They still have not even addressed them. It’s a joke,” says James Kopp, a former alter boy and victim of abuse in the mid-Seventies.
