Attorney General Report on Clergy Sexual Abuse in Illinois
In 2023, Attorney General Kwame Raoul released an investigative report into clergy sexual abuse in Illinois, appending former Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s findings. This investigative report revealed claims by 1,997 survivors who were sexually abused by 451 priests or members of Catholic clergy in dioceses across Illinois.
This report contains the names of clergy associated with the Archdiocese and Diocese in Illinois who have been accused of sexual misconduct. While lawsuits were filed involving many of these alleged perpetrators, the vast majority of the claims against these individuals have been settled or have not been fully evaluated in a civil court. Accordingly, the allegations should be considered just allegations and should not be considered proven or substantiated in a court of law. Download the report.
