New sex abuse lawsuit leveled at Kansas City priest

A new lawsuit is accusing the Rev. Shawn Ratigan of engaging a 9-year-old girl in sexually explicit conduct as recently as May. The suit also alleges that Bishop Robert Finn allowed Ratigan continued access to children even after learning of disturbing images found on the priest’s computer and despite warnings from clerics about his troubling behavior.
