Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report (2018): 

John M. Duggan was included in a 2018 Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report following an investigation into six of the eight Catholic Pennsylvania Dioceses: Allentown, Erie, Greensburg, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, and Scranton. The investigation uncovered the sexual abuse of over 1,000 children over the course of 70 years by more than 300 predator priests. Also outlined in this report is the Catholic Church’s “playbook for concealing the truth.” The seven-point playbook details how top Church officials in the dioceses across Pennsylvania covered up the sexual abuse of children by clergy.
