In this morningâ€™s Lodi News-Sentinel, local attorney Larry Drivon, a specialist in clergy abuse cases, said:
â€?If Roger Mahony had dialed three simple numbers in 1982 or 1984, none of this would come to pass. Those three numbers are 9-1-1.â€?
Drivon noted that while Mahony issued plenty of apologies this weekend, none of them were for his own complicity.[Attorney: Mahonyâ€™s Apology Shallow, By Ross Farrow, Lodi News-Sentinel, July 16, 2007]
