Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard, Former President of French Catholic Bishops' Conference, Admits to Abusing Girl in 1980s

From Wiktionary

Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard:

“Thirty-five years ago, when I was a parish priest, I behaved in a reprehensible way with a young girl aged 14. My behaviour has inevitably caused serious and lasting consequences for this person.”

Ricard was made archbishop of Bordeaux in 2001 by Pope John Paul II and made a cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006. In 2002, Pope John Paul II appointed Ricard to the influential Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
