ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A Ramsey County judge has given the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis until Dec. 17 to disclose a list of 33 priests credibly accused of sexually abusing minors.

District Judge John Van de North on Monday also ordered the Diocese of Winona to release a similar list of 13 priests. Both were compiled in 2004.

They must release the priests’ names,  birth year and age, year of ordination, whether they’re alive or dead and the year of death, the parishes they served, their current status, and the current city and state where they live.

He says the dioceses must provide detailed explanations for any names they choose not to release.

The dioceses must file the same information by Jan. 6 for any priests accused since the lists were compiled.
