Dozens of priests, hundreds of victims. New documents just released by the Milwaukee Archdiocese name more than forty priests accused of molesting minors. It's all part of a deal between the church and sex abuse victims suing for fraud.
The names of all 45 offending priests including 15 spending time in Fond Du Lac and Sheboygan, now available to anyone on the Diocese's website.
People in Green Bay say it's a step forward for the Catholic Church.
"I think the church has been hiding a lot of things and i wish they hadn't," says Charlie Hagen of Green Bay.
"Alleviate the mysteriousness that people think surrounds the Catholic church," says Jaena Manson of Green Bay.
The majority of the priests in the report are now dead, but S.N.A.P. or the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests says there still may be more left to uncover and are calling for a federal investigation.
