The Archdiocese of Miami disclosed on the weekend that 38 priests have been accused of sexually abusing children since 1958. The archdiocese has not given the names of all of the priests accused of misconduct.

Many of the 38 priests have died, moved to other dioceses, resigned for health reasons or been placed on administrative leave. Only one, Edward Olszewski, has been convicted, stemming from allegations in the Detroit archdiocese.

According to court and other official records, here is a partial list of archdiocese priests who have been accused of sexual misconduct: Rocco D'Angelo, Arnulfo Arandia, Ricardo Castellanos, Francisco Carrera, Charles Cassetta, Joseph Cinesi, Christopher Eggleton, Neil Doherty, Thomas Engbers, Ernesto Garcia-Rubio, Alvaro Guichard, Hector Gonzalez-Abreu, Joaquin Guerrero, Joseph Huck, Joseph Kershner, Ronald John Luka, Jan Malicki, Jose Nickse, Edward Olszewski, William Romero, Trevor Smith.
