Response to Release of Documents

From Joe Dixon, Counsel for the Archdiocese, Fredrikson & Byron

The Ramsey County Attorney’s Office and the St. Paul Police Department have fully and thoroughly investigated the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and its leaders for 3 years.   They have reviewed each of the documents made public today and investigated the allegations raised in those documents.

Today, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi told the public there is no basis to bring a criminal charge against any of those leaders.  He also dismissed all of the criminal charges against the Archdiocese. That dismissal is unconditional and speaks for itself.
