Duluth Bishop Sirba to release names of priests accused of sexual abuse

December 30, 2013 Updated Dec 30, 2013 at 3:39 PM CST

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Duluth Bishop Paul Sirba will release names of priests in the Duluth Diocese who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor.

Bishop Sirba plans to host a press conference on Tuesday to release the list. Attorneys requested earlier this month that the names of 17 priests accused of sexual abuse be released to the public.

This comes after the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis released the names of 34 priests with accusations of sexual abuse.
