A Reminder: Bishop Peter Jugis of Charlotte, North Carolina, Has Not Yet Fulfilled Promise to Release List of Accused Priests This Year

It's now the final week of the year, and Bishop Peter Jugis of the Catholic diocese of North Carolina has not released the list of priests accused of abusing minors in the Charlotte diocese. He made a promise this past May to release such a list before the end of the year.

Charlotte has been characterized by watchdogs as one of the least transparent dioceses in the nation. It is one of the last dioceses in the nation to release a list of accused priests.

If the bishop fulfills his promise and releases his list between Christmas and New Year's Day, it will, of course, be buried in the news lull that occurs in the final week of the year.
