According to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, six Catholic dioceses in the state will not reveal the names of a minimum of 500 priests accused of sexual abuse. Her office has spoken to all six dioceses and met with diocesan representatives, lawyers, and bishops. Our Chicago sexual abuse lawyers understand that the investigation has lasted for months. It started after a Pennsylvania grand jury report found 300 priests who had perpetrated sexual abuse in that state. The report covered two years of investigations into clergy sexual abuse and included findings of 1,000 victims. The report claimed that the cover-up within the Catholic Church went all the way up the chain of command to the Vatican.
