Jefferson City Catholic Diocese releases list of clergy ‘credibly accused’ of abuse

A Jefferson City bishop released a list Thursday afternoon that included the names of those who had once served in the local diocese.

The names were those removed from the ministry because they had been “credibly accused” of actions that would be in violation of the church’s Charter for The Protection of Children.

The 33 names were all either deceased removed or expelled from the ministry.

Bishop Shawn McKnight announced in a press conference Thursday afternoon, that a new policy will take effect in 2020 that requires all religious communities serving in the diocese to release it’s own list of those “credibly accused” of abuse.
