Apparently this guy assaulted some 200 deaf boys. Aside from the fact they're deaf, that's still an amazing number of boys to molest. Article says current pope decided to keep this secret when this case was under his jurisdiction as cardinal. I don't really pay attention to these priest molestation cases, reason this news caught my eye is because these kids were deaf.

I don't know if this is the trial you're referring to, and unfortunately, your link no longer refers to an active page, but back in February of 2013, HBO aired a brilliant if disturbing piece: Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, which dealt with the issue of child abuse by priests, particularly of deaf students.

Sadly, I haven't heard much news about this situation since the documentary aired, and I wonder what if any legal and other action is being taken on behalf of those victimized.
