The order also indicates the scope of the grand jury’s investigation of clergy sex abuse. More than 300 people identified by name are alleged to have committed criminal or morally reprehensible conduct in the grand jury report, the court’s opinion states.
The grand jury report describes more than 300 clergymen as “predator priests,” according to the court opinion released Friday.
State Attorney General Josh Shapiro called the court’s order authorizing the release of the report a “victory” for victims. Shapiro has been fighting to have the report released since the state’s highest court sealed it amidst legal challenges.
