A Minnesota-based law firm is revealing a list of nearly 400 Catholic clergy members and church staff in Illinois who have been publicly accused of sexual misconduct. A report by Jeff Anderson and Associates has background information on 395 priests and laypeople who have been accused in the state’s six dioceses. The list includes 43 clergy from the Joliet Diocese. The list also includes about 115 clergy members from the Chicago Archdiocese. The Archdiocese of Chicago’s says it hasn’t released the names of 22 priests on the Anderson list because the claims against them are unsubstantiated.
