In New Hampshire, Attorney General Kelly A. Ayotte's office has released files on dozens of sexual abuse allegations against Catholic clergy. Most of the charges relate to incidents decades ago, but some claim abuse as recently as 2000. The files disclose the identities of 27 members of the clergy who had not previously been publicly named. Thursday's New York Times reports that the files contain significant information on the communications between the Diocese of Manchester and prosecutors after the clergy sex abuse scandal erupted in 2002. In a 2002 settlement, the Diocese agreed to annual audits by the state’s Attorney General.
