The report said a New Jersey diocese then took in DePaoli, just as Bevilacqua had accepted Connor after his conviction.

After his stay in New Jersey, DePaoli returned to a Philadelphia parish. A nun then complained that his behavior there made her worry about the safety of children. She was fired from her position, the jury said.
