The Fresno Diocese that oversees 87 parishes in several counties is investigating sex abuse claims against priests all the way back to 1922. Bishop Armando Ochoa told reporters at Friday’s news conference that clergy should be held to the highest standards of integrity.
“I have fully accepted my responsibility to address any serious matter that knowingly puts at risk any of the souls entrusted to my pastoral care, and I will continue to do so.” Ochoa says it will take time to review all the files but the names of suspect priests will be released.
