(WPRI) – At the Academy Awards Sunday, “Spotlight” – which portrays the Boston Globe’s investigation into the Catholic church’s cover-up of sexual abuse by members of the clergy – was crowned best picture.
A key figure in the film, Jim Scanlan – who went by the alias “Kevin from Providence” – spoke exclusively with Eyewitness News Monday about his decision to come forward about his abuse.
“You realize, ‘I shouldn’t be the one with the shame – these predators should be the ones with the shame.’”
See Steve Nielsen’s full interview with Scanlan in the video above.
