New report details the extent of clergy sex abuse in Illinois

Attorney General Kwame Raoul’s office released a report showing the Catholic church in Illinois did not report hundreds of cases of abuse.

   

After a five-year investigation, the AG’s office released a 696-page report showing that the Catholic church failed to acknowledge hundreds of clerics and brothers who abused at least 1,997 minors across Illinois dioceses.

Reset talks with an abuse survivor, as well as with a reporter who has been covering the investigation for years.
