DENVER — Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser released a long-awaited report on Wednesday detailing child sex abuse by Catholic priests in the state.
According to the document, 166 children were victimized by 43 catholic priests in Colorado over the past 70 years.
On average, it took 19 1/2 years to remove a priest accused of abuse, according to the report.
The findings do not reveal any new abuse by priests, with the most recent in Colorado taking place in 1998.
Weiser is not recommending any new cases
