Wednesday, the Ohio Supreme Court dismissed a woman’s case against Tledo priest Gerald Robinson. The woman, who filed anonymously, claimed the priest sexually abused her in satanic rituals when she was a child.
Lower courts had already determined the suit was filed too late. The Supreme Court issued its ruling without comment.
The suit was filed in 2005, a year after Robinson’s arrest for the 1980 murder of a nun. Robinson was convicted in 2006 and is serving a 15 years-to-life sentence.
The woman said she was disappointed, but “not really upset,” and added that she is considering writing a book about her ordeal. She claimed she was abused starting in 1968 by perpetrators who wore disguises and used fake names during satanic rituals.
The woman said when she saw Robinson’s “evil eyes” on TV after his arrest, she recognized him as one of the priests who had abused her.
