The shocking investigation into clergy abuse in Pennsylvania has led states and dioceses around the country to once again confront the extent of sex abuse in their own ranks. In California, the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego has confirmed that it is conducting an internal file review going back more than 50 years.
After the Pennsylvania grand jury report revealed instances of sexual abuse by more than 300 priests over a period of 70 years, Kevin Eckery, spokesman for the San Diego diocese, says it plans to publish a handful of names of priests that have not before been made public on the dioceses' web site. Eckery says most of the data on this has been public for years, listed on the watchdog site Bishop-Accountability.org
The review is looking for names of priests — not yet made public — who have faced accusations of sexual misconduct with a minor, deemed credible by the San Diego diocese.
