Priest’s Diary Lists Sex Abuse Accounts

A diary taken from a priest accused of molesting 20 boys at a Catholic school and summer camp in the 1970s includes an entry saying, “I am a child molester,” according to court papers.

Investigators searching the Rev. Gary Timmons’ Chicago apartment found the handwritten diary, notes describing his sexual encounters with underage California boys and a letter to one of his alleged victims.

Timmons, 54, was arrested last week in Chicago and faces 17 felony counts involving two men who say he sexually abused them when they were children. At least 18 other men have made similar accusations, and more charges are possible.
