The Diocese of Duluth today released a list of 17 of its former priests who have been determined to be credibly accused of sexually abusing children.
All 17 priests have been removed from the church, are under investigation or were deceased before the accusations surfaced. Four are alive today.
The list also includes five other priests with ties to the area who have been accused while working in other ministries.
