ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Attorney General Lisa Madigan has launched a clergy abuse hotline for people to report sexual abuse. It will be answered by trained staff in Madigan’s office.

She’s also contacting the state’s Catholic Church diocese to review records of sexual assault and abuse.

She said she expects the diocese to fully cooperate or she will get local state’s attorney’s and law enforcement involved in an investigation.
