Chicago Archdiocese Releases Internal Documents

Originally published on Wed January 22, 2014 8:12 am

Newly released internal church documents indicate that for decades, top leaders in Chicago's Catholic Archdiocese tried to hide allegations of sexual abuse by priests. The documents were released on Tuesday as part of a settlement agreement with victims of 30 abusive priests. Those survivors now accuse church leaders of orchestrating a cover-up.
