SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The seven members of a committee investigating allegations of sexual abuse against Roman Catholic priests in Vermont say they expect to send a final draft of their report to the diocese by the end of the week.
In a statement issued Monday on behalf of the committee, member and retired Vermont journalist Michael Donoghue says the report commissioned by the diocese last October took longer than expected because some of the personnel files were more than 1,000 pages.
The committee includes an abuse survivor and one non-Catholic.
An activist with the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests demonstrated Monday in front of the diocese's South Burlington offices.
The Vermont diocese says the report will be released by the end of the month.
