Lawyer Publishes List Of Accused Catholic Church Sex Abusers

Victims of clergy sex abuse spoke out in Boston today as a lawyer released the names of 117 accused abusers. All but 18 names already appear on the website of the victim advocacy group, Bishop Accountability.

Lawyer Mitchell Garabedian said he’s reached settlements with all of the people whose names he’s releasing, and he hopes more victims will now come forward.

Meanwhile, Irish Television yesterday reported on a 1997 letter from the Vatican that was uncovered, which instructed Irish bishops not to report suspected child abusers to police. Mitchell Garabedian tells us what that revelation could mean for victims of abuse.
