New Sexual Abuse Allegations Surface Against Boise Catholic Diocese Priest

Jun 29, 2020

 

Note: the following text and audio contains discussions of sexual assault. 

It’s been nearly three decades since Lisa Howser first came forward with allegations of sexual abuse by a Catholic priest at Gonzaga University in Spokane. 

Howser, who now lives in the Midwest, says a well-known priest who ran the school’s abroad program in Florence, Italy assaulted her when she was a student in the early 1990s. His name is Father Bruno Segatta. 

That same priest now leads a congregation in McCall, Idaho. 

 

This story came to light because of our guest today. Emily Schwing is a reporter with the investigative public radio show and podcast “Reveal.” She joins Idaho Matters today to tell us more about her investigation into Father Bruno and his connections to the Boise Catholic Diocese.
