"Every time I tried to bring the conversation around to something that made me feel safer, Bernie would bring it back to the sex," says Rosanne Schwab, who claims Ward was a predator.
- Schwab says she grew very uncomfortable and when Ward put his hand on her shoulder, she froze with fear.
"And he took that same hand and grabbed the back of my head and pulled me to him and stuck his tongue in my mouth and held me very tightly with the one hand behind my head and the other hand up against my breasts," says Schwab.
Ward, now 57, left the priesthood to become a reporter for KGO radio. Later, he landed a talk show on the station.
Ward's attorney, Doron Weinberg, says the allegations are false and said they "could have a negative impact on the federal prosecution currently pending against Mr. Ward."
