Chicago Priest Sex Abuse Victims Demand More Files

posted on January 22, 2014

The Associated Press reports on the publication of more than 6,000 pages of internal church documents that revealed a history of sexual abuse by priests and cover-up attempts by bishops in the Archdiocese of Chicago. The files were released through settlements between the nation’s third-largest archdiocese and victims, but only cover 30 out of the at least 65 clergymen who have faced allegations of abuse. Angel Santiago, one of the victims abused by the 30 named clergymen, said, “These files here represent a lot for us survivors. For some of us it will be answers, for some of us it will be peace of mind … for all of us, it’s a start.”
