Archdiocese Task Force to Investigate Priest Misconduct Allegations

Posted: Updated:

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis says it's creating an independent task force to investigate how priests accused of misconduct were handled. 

Archbishop John Nienstedt has named a Dominican priest for the University of St. Thomas law school, Reginald Whitt, to appoint a lay task force to review all issues related to clergy sexual misconduct.

Members of the task force are expected to be named by Wednesday.

A former archdiocese employee, Jennifer Haselberger, has called for an external review of priest files.

Haselberger resigned from her job as chancellor for canonical affairs because of her concerns about the way sexual abuse allegations were handled.

Haselberger says the archdiocese failed to report what she believed to be child pornography to police, so she went to authorities herself.
