CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia's Roman Catholic archdiocese released the names Thursday of priests or deacons who it said have been credibly accused of child sexual abuse since 1950, and three of them have Mineral County connections.
Eleven of the 18 accused clergy are deceased, the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston said in a news release. None of the others are in active ministry.
More than 2,000 files containing tens of thousands of documents were reviewed. The diocese hopes the release "will be one of many steps taken to restore trust with parishioners and the broader community in West Virginia," Wheeling-Charleston Archbishop William Lori said.
The list included brief descriptions of accusations included inappropriate touching, abuse or solicitation.
Among the accused are:
 - The Rev. James Joseph Chetock, who served the Annunciation of Our Lord in Fort Ashby and St. Anthony’s Church in Ridgeley from 1998-2002. Accusations were filed in regard to his service in Parkersburg and Weirton. He was suspended and voluntarily left the ministry in 2005, at which time he was serving a church in Vienna, West Virginia.
 - The Rev. Francis Roscetti , who served St. Anthony in Ridgeley from 1967-72. Accusations were filed in regard to his service to those churches. He passed away in 1991.
 - The Rev. Martin D. Brady, who served Annunciation of Our Lord in Fort Ashby and St. Anthony in Ridgeley 1986-1990. Accusations were filed in the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown 1976-1980, and Rev. Brady passed away in 2003.
One of the accused priests, the Rev. Felix Owino, was deported to Africa following his 2010 conviction in northern Virginia of aggravated sexual battery of a girl. Owino had served as an associate pastor at a Catholic church in Weirton and also taught at Wheeling Jesuit University.
The case of Brother Rogers Hannan, who served at two parishes in McDowell County, was referred to a prosecutor. He was convicted and sentenced in 2014 to up to 10 years in prison for solicitation of a minor.
The Rev. Victor Frobas, who served at multiple West Virginia parishes, was convicted in 1988 of molesting two boys at a parish in suburban St. Louis. He served more than two years in prison and died in 1993.
The Rev. Paul J. Schwarten, who served at parishes in Weston, Ronceverte and White Sulphur Springs more than a half century ago, served 18 months in prison for inappropriately touching a minor in Nebraska. He died in 1993.
Also released is a list of 13 accused priests from other regions or dioceses who served in West Virginia but had no claims filed against them with the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston.
The list was released two months after Pope Francis accepted the resignation of West Virginia Bishop Michael Bransfield and authorized an investigation into allegations he sexually harassed adults.
"This list undoubtedly reveals the failings of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston to fully protect young people within the Church," Lori said. "Rightly, many have a cause for anger and pain. I offer my sincerest apologies to all victims of sexual abuse and vow to strive to take proper action to ensure the safety of children and others in our care."
