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.

The attorney, Mitchell Garabedian, has represented more than 1,000 survivors of child sex abuse at the hands of priests in the Catholic Church. Garabedian said the priests affiliated with the Diocese of Rochester were ordained or assigned over the last eight decades.

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