OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Separate internal audits of the Roman Catholic dioceses in Oklahoma City and Tulsa have identified 22 Catholic clerics for whom investigators found substantiated allegations of sexual abuse of children.

An investigation released Thursday by the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City named 11 priests from 1960 through 2018. A separate report released Wednesday by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma also found 11 “credibly accused” Catholic clerics since that diocese began in 1973.
