In 2013, the personnel files of 42 credibly accused sexually abusive priests from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee were unsealed. Some of these files date back 70-80 years. A retrospective content analysis of these 42 priest personnel files was conducted. We collaborated to read and code 4,228 pages, seeking evidence of grooming behaviors. Priests’ grooming behaviors were identified using a deductive approach.
