Earlier this year the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte announced it would release a list of clergy members credibly accused of sexual assault.

They didn’t release the list Monday, but did share more about the list. The list will run approximately 20 names long and include ordered and parish priests. The list will include credibly accused clergy whether they are alive or have passed away.

The Catholic Diocese of Charlotte has announced it will publish a list of clergy members who’ve been credibly accused of child sex abuse.  In a statement issued Monday, Bishop Peter Jugis said it's hard to predict how long its investigation will take but that the list should be published by the end of the year.
