Santa Rosa Diocese to Release the Names of Priests Credibly Accused of Child Abuse


The Santa Rosa Diocese is set to release the names of priests credibly accused of child sexual abuse. Bishop Robert F. Vasa says the list of names he’ll release Saturday will include about two dozens names, including 16 priests who served in Santa Rosa. The list includes the names of priests accused throughout the Catholic diocese’s entire 57-year history. To date, the diocese has paid out nearly 30-million dollars in settlements to victims of at least ten priests since the 1990s.
