A Sonoma County priest named in a sexual abuse lawsuit has been vindicated by his accuser. Plaintiff’s attorneys say that Monsignor James Pulskamp, one-time director of the Hanna Boys Center in the Sonoma Valley, was misidentified by the accuser who now names the disgraced Reverend John Crews as the alleged assailant. During a review, the victim reportedly recognized Crews as his abuser and just confused his named with Pulskamp. Crews took over for Pulskamp as the director at the Hanna Boys Center in 1984. Crews was last known to be in South Carolina and has been accused of abuse in 10 new cases.
