A list released Monday gives us the names of eight priests accused of sexual misconduct.

They all served in the Diocese of New Ulm, and their names came to light after attorney Jeff Anderson released the January deposition of Father Francis Garvey.

He is a former official at the New Ulm diocese, which had previously refused to release the list.

This is the first time we've received any names of accused priests from the New Ulm diocese. They could become part of the bigger case against the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

Doctor Charles Reid, a Catholicism expert from the University of Saint Thomas, stopped by KSTP to give insight.
