Proposed redactions to Md. clergy sexual abuse report before its release

March 14th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Before a report on sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests in Maryland is made public, a judge will have to sign off on the report’s proposed redactions the state’s attorney general released on Monday. Attorney General Anthony Brown’s office said in a statement it had sent a list of proposed redactions to the attorney general’s report, titled “Clergy Abuse in Maryland” to the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. The report is based on a 2019 investigation that uncovered a large number of allegations of sexual abuse in the Baltimore Archdiocese.
