"Bernard Law fled Boston hours before the arrival of Massachusetts state troopers were to serve him with subpoenas to testify before a grand jury."

I believe that is wrong. From Wiki:

"In December 2002, Law left Boston. It is often alleged [6] that he left just hours before state troopers arrived with subpoenas seeking his grand jury testimony; however, he had previously given evidence before two grand juries and been fully investigated by the state attorney general and the five district attorneys in the counties in which the archdiocese operates. When the state attorney general issued his report entitled Child Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese of Boston (July 23, 2003) he severely criticized Law mentioning that "the Archdiocese has shown an institutional relectance to adequately addess the problem and, in fact, made choices that allowed the abuse to continue" but did not allege that Law had tried to evade investigation and he did state that Law had not broken any laws because the law requiring abuse to be reported was not expanded to include priests until 2002.[7]"

Law is one of the worst offenders no doubt - but to imply he left because he was about to be subpoena'd is wrong I believe
