Nelson Bakker filed the motion Monday asking to “exclude any comment or reference about any discipline, investigation, resignation of WPD Officer Dahlquist or any reference to an alleged federal investigation of the same throughout the entirety of the proceedings.” Dahlquist’s attorney, Jonathan Mc Connell, said that she resigned effective last Thursday over how the Police Department handled an internal investigation of her.
She was wrongly suspected of being in a hit-and-run accident last year, Mc Connell said.
The victims have filed complaints against several senior diocesan officials, including Barbarin, accusing them of failing to report the priest or remove him from duty despite being aware of his past.
Barbarin has admitted to "errors in the management and nomination of certain priests".
While free on bail, she also was arrested in April 2016 on the felony charge of filing a false police report about unauthorized purchases and withdrawals on her debit card.
Police investigated and determined Anderson gave permission to a friend to use the debit card and arrested her instead, police said.
In the sex-crimes case, Dahlquist had been listed as a potential witness in charges against 40-year-old Jordan Lewis. Lewis faces 13 charges: two counts of aggravated human trafficking, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of rape, three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy, one count of criminal sodomy and one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Nelson Bakker said in her motion that Dahlquist was an officer who responded to the scene in the Lewis case – that “Dahlquist’s entire interaction with one of the victims is captured on Axon body camera” – and that prosecutors don’t plan to call her as a witness in the trial.
People who harass others or joke about tragedies will be blocked.
Barbarin has always denied the allegations but last year he came under immense pressure when the sex abuse scandal first emerged.
The then Prime Minister Manuel Valls urged Barbarin to "take responsibility" for the scandal.
