The list of 90 religious and lay people includes 59 priests who have substantiated accusations against them, including four still living in the Greater Cincinnati area

The Diocese of Covington has published a list with the names of the priests, brothers, sisters and lay employees/deacons who have had the accusations made against them of the sexual abuse of minors substantiated.

The list does not say what each individual allegedly did or what accusations have been substantiated.

According to the diocese, the list is a result of a “comprehensive and independent review of thousands of diocesan records dating back to 1950” from two former FBI agents, who were allowed to review all Chancery files, archival files, priest personnel files and Safe Environment files.
