Bishop Tyson Creates Website With Names of Accused Priests
Yakima bishop Joseph Tyson has announced the creation of a website that may help victims of sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic priests. A news release from the Yakima Diocese says the website "lists the names of priests and deacons with substantiated allegations of sexual abuse of a minor during their time of ministry within the Diocese of Yakima."
The decision to create the website is based on the bishop's desire for transparency and to push more victims to speak out and come forward. https://sites.google.com/a/yakimadiocese.com/abuse-disclosure-list/
