HELENA — A new list of 111 western Jesuits accused of sexually abusing children includes 30 who had assignments in Montana dating back to the late 1800s.
The names of 20 of those with Montana connections were previously published by the state’s two Roman Catholic dioceses as part of lawsuit settlements with abuse victims.
Nine of the 10 are dead. In some instances, their allegations coincided with their time in Montana. In others, the abuse happened before or after they were in the state.
Some of the previously published names include new details about their assignments in the Montana dioceses or information that had been previously incomplete.
