The Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno is in the process of compiling a list of priests credibly accused of sex abuse, but an advocacy group is getting out ahead of the organization.
Prior to a news conference this morning, the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests released a list of 23 clergy including Monsignor Craig Harrison. The list includes those who have worked in the Fresno Diocese and who they allege has had credible accusations of sex abuse lodged against them. One name was later removed.
In recent weeks, SNAP said they have been contacted by five people who have claimed they were sexually abused by Harrison over the course of his career.
After the first allegation was made to the Fresno Diocese on April 12, Harrison was placed on administrative leave and is currently staying at the coast.
Here is the full list of names provided by SNAP:
Fr. William Allison; Fr. Gaspar Bautista; Fr. Brian Bjorklund; Fr. John Bradley; Fr. Tod Brown; Fr. Stuart Campbell; Fr. Hermy Ceniza; Fr. James Collins; Fr. Basil Congro; Fr Donald Farmer; Fr. Don Flickinger; Fr. Miguel Flores; Fr. Benjamin Gabriel; Fr. Robert Gamel; Fr. Louis Garcia; Fr. Craig Harrison; Fr. Anthony Herdegen; Fr. John Lastiri; Fr. Vincent O' Connell; Fr. Joseph Pacheco; Fr. Thomas Purcell; Fr. Eric Swearingen.
