A Pennsylvania grand jury released a report Tuesday that named more than 300 Catholic priests accused of child sex abuse. The 900-page report spans seven decades and draws from a two-year investigation by the state attorney general into six of Pennsylvania's eight dioceses. The investigations started after separate probes into the other two dioceses revealed rampant abuse. Victims' accounts span decades, and some of the priests named have died. But others are still serving churches in Pittsburgh because their abuse claims weren't substantiated, Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Other priests' names will be redacted from the list because they're currently fighting allegations in court.
