ATLANTA — A report on the investigation of suspected sexual abuses by Roman Catholic priests was released this week, naming multiple priests who were a part of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Attorney General Chris Carr announced the investigation in April 2019, months after the Archdiocese of Atlanta and the Diocese of Savannah had agreed to cooperate with the investigation. The terms were laid out in a formal memorandum of understanding.

In the report, members of the Archdiocese of Atlanta and the Diocese of Savannah are named. However, it is unclear if any ever faced any formal charges from law enforcement.


Channel 2 Action News reached out to the Archdiocese of Atlanta for a statement but has not received a response.
