The Archdiocese of Baltimore published the names of 71 priests and religious brothers who have been accused of child sexual abuse.

The names of many of these accused men were released back in September 2002, yet this is the first comprehensive list made available online.

Clergymen accused after 2002, and those accused of sexual abuse after their deaths, have been included in the updated list. Also now included are "instances where an investigation concluded that the facts did not indicate sexual abuse had occurred."

Barbara Dorris, the victims outreach director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) said the list is “incomplete.”

“While we’re glad Baltimore Catholic officials are again listing predator priests on the archdiocesan website but wish they would do the same on local parish websites,” Dorris said in a news release. “We’re sad that this has taken so long to do and believe they can and should do much more to protect kids.”
