"For the past several weeks my office has been working with the Cass and Burleigh county states attorney’s offices to ensure any allegations of sexual abuse by members of the clergy are thoroughly investigated. As the BCI investigation continues, if it leads to other offenders not already identified by the Dioceses, we will ensure, wherever possible, that all offenders are held accountable for their crimes to the fullest extent possible under the law. We appreciate the continued cooperation of the Fargo and Bismarck Dioceses as these investigations proceed. I encourage any victim of sexual abuse by a member of the clergy in North Dakota to file a report with my office," said Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem.
