Former BCA chief named to new archdiocese position

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has named the former head of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to a key position in the wake of clergy sexual misconduct.

Administrative law Judge Timothy O'Malley will serve in the newly created position of director of Ministerial Standards and Safe Environment. The position was recommended by a task force that investigated the way church officials have handled accusations of priest misconduct.

The archdiocese is combining all safe environment and ministerial standards programs under one office, which O'Malley will direct.

O'Malley says like others, he has been troubled and disappointed by how the Catholic church has addressed reports of abuse by priests, and he wants help change that.
