New York Archdiocese names 120 priests 'credibly accused' of child sex abuse as cardinal begs for forgiveness 'for the failings of those clergy'

The Archdiocese of New York on Friday released a list of at least 120 priests and other clergy members accused of sexually abusing a child or having child pornography that have worked under its jurisdiction.

The list includes names of bishops, high school teachers, a scouting chaplain and a notorious cardinal.

The release, from the nation's second-largest Roman Catholic archdiocese, follows more than 120 such disclosures from other dioceses around the country as the church reckons with demands for transparency about sex abuse by clergy.
