West Virginia's Roman Catholic archdiocese on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018, released the names of priests or deacons who it says have been credibly accused of child sexual abuse since 1950. The list was released two months after Pope Francis accepted the resignation of West Virginia Bishop Michael Bransfield and authorized an investigation into allegations he sexually harassed adults.
