Syracuse Diocese Releases Names Of Priests Accused Of Sex Abuse

Syracuse, N.Y. - The Syracuse Catholic Diocese has released a list of scores of predator priests.

The list contains members of the clergy credibly accused of sexually abusing a minor. Some of the allegations date back 70 years. Many of those listed are dead.

The only good news. There are no new allegations since the Diocese began working with local prosecutors to investigate sex abuse claims in 2015. Onondaga County DA Bill Fitzpatrick talked about that with Dave Allen Monday Morning.

The policy reversal is a part of a national trend to disclose the names of abusive priests.

In September, the State Attorney General launched a probe into all eight dioceses in the state, seeking information about whether church officials knew about and covered up sexual abuse by clergy. It followed a similar investigation in Pennsylvania which uncovered sexual abuse by more than 300 priests along with rampant cover-ups by the Catholic Church.

Earlier this year, the Diocese of Syracuse began to offer financial compensation for damages to the victims of clergy sex abuse
