The Catholic diocese of Sioux Falls has published the names of 11 clergy members credibly accused of sexual abuse against a minor.  The diocese posted the information on its web site Thursday.  According to the release, the priests with accusations against them in these cases were substantiated by police, the diocese or in some cases both.  Nine of the 11 priests are dead.  According to the Aberdeen American News six of the priests named have ties to northeast South Dakota in one way or another.  Bishop Paul Swain of the dioceses hopes making this list public will encourage victims to come forward.
