The Pennsylvania Attorney General is petitioning for the release of the “Clergy Sex Abuse” report involving six catholic dioceses.

Victim advocates say keeping the Grand Jury investigation under wraps is protecting the wrong people.

The Attorney General will take his step in the morning to unleash this report and the pressure is growing on the Supreme Court to get their review over with and make this Grand Jury report a public document.

For victim advocate Karen Polesir, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court can’t keep secret the Grand Jury investigation of six catholic dioceses any longer.

“It makes a person feel unheard, and unbelieved,” said Polesir.

In just hours, Attorney General Josh Shapiro will file a formal objection with the high court. The Supreme Court blocked the report’s release two weeks ago.
