Bishop Accountability


Accused Priests:
Total Priests:
Alleged Victims:

See the Dallas Morning News database entry on former Bishop Sam Jacobs, now bishop of Houma-Thibodaux. The June 2002 database examined the records of bishops and identified those who had allowed accused priests to continue working or had otherwise protected priests accused of sexual abuse. The database is relevant to the bishops' "Nature and Scope" study because the bishops who prepared the surveys for the study are in many cases responsible for the "scope" of the problem.
