Church sex abuse files will be made public by the Archdiocese of Chicago, according to a WebProNews report on Thursday. The church sex abuse files of the Archdiocese contain thousands of pages. The files have information regarding clergy’s sex abuse allegations and will victims’ attorneys will be allowed to view them.

The attorneys are moving to make these file public next week. Within the documentation, there is information which includes the name of priests who have been accused of sexual abuse and molestations as well as where the priests were moved to within the church. The documentation being released will include 30 priests’ files.

The church sex abuse allegations have gone on for many years. The Archdiocese of Chicago has reportedly already paid more than $12.6 million to 16 victims. The report states that there will likely be more payouts in the future as lawyers sort through the newly-released information which should detail which priests were involved with sexual abuse of children and the length of time the molestations occurred.

Victims, as well as the attorneys, assert that they are not doing this for the money but are more interested in exposing the sex abusers and the church for hiding the abusive priests and allowing them to keep working around children.
