Shapiro releases findings of 2-year grand jury investigation on sexual abuse by Catholic Priests

Surrounded by victims Tuesday afternoon, Attorney General Josh Shapiro made public the findings from a two-year grand jury investigation into child sexual abuse by Catholic priests. 

The investigation covered six dioceses including Allentown, Erie, Harrisburg, Greensburg, Pittsburgh and Scranton and found that there were 301 Catholic priests who sexually abused children while serving in the church. Many high ranking church officials were aware of the abuse but chose to cover it up to avoid scandal, according to the grand jury.
