At a panel discussion tonight regarding sexual abuse scandals in the Catholic Church, Bishop Douglas Deshotel says he is considering releasing more information to the public.

When asked if he would consider releasing the list of priests accused of sexual abuse in the Diocese of Lafayette, Deshotel said, ” I’m considering it.”

His words were met with applause from those in the room.

This is a developing story. We will have more information from Tuesday night’s panel discussion on KATC at 10.
