Woman Speaks Up About Alleged Abuse By Colo. Nun

DENVER (AP) -- A woman who says she was molested as a teenager by a Colorado nun has asked anyone else who might be a victim to step forward.

Anne Gleeson of St. Louis says she was molested by Sister Judith Fisher in St. Louis when she was 13, and again later in Denver.

Gleeson sued Fisher, Fisher's order and the St. Louis Archdiocese shortly before Fisher died in 2004. The archdiocese settled Gleeson's case and 17 other claims of sexual abuse involving Fisher and five priests after Fisher's death.

The Denver Archdiocese says Fisher was a principal at St. Francis De Sales School in Denver during the mid-1970s.

Fisher left her order, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, in 1979.

    I hope she is getting hers if she is guilty of these accusations. If someone knew this devil was among the church and allowing this to happen to children should be charge as if they did it themselves. This may be a way to get a handle on these catholic perps in these catholic churches. It's hard to believe how many children have victims of one religion. To think that's only thse that have come forward.
