Michigan AG Schuette opens Catholic priest sex abuse investigation

The Michigan Attorney General's Office announced Friday it has launched a statewide investigation into sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

The office posted on its website that it now has an open investigation into whether clergy in the Catholic Church in Michigan committed acts of abuse against children. It will examine possible abuse in all of the seven Catholic dioceses in Michigan, which has about 2 million Catholics.

"The Michigan Department of Attorney General has determined that a full and complete investigation of what happened within the Catholic Church is required," it reads on the Attorney General's website. "This investigation is and will continue to be independent, thorough, transparent, and prompt. My department and this investigation will find out who knew what, and when."
