Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - On Tuesday morning, an attorney spoke on behalf of 17 survivors of sexual abuse, saying eight priests who were ordained or assigned in the Diocese of Rochester abused those individuals.

Those priests are Eugene Emo, David Simon, Francis Vogt, Stuart Hogan, Charles McCarthy, Gary Shaw, Richard Orlando, and Thomas Valenti.
