LOS ANGELES —

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will review personnel files of allegedly abusive priests that were recently released by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Scott said Monday the special victims bureau is reviewing all the files and comparing them to cases the department has already investigated to see if there are additional victims or if there are cases or crimes they weren't aware of.

The Los Angeles Police Department announced a similar review last week. The two probes are independent, but Scott says resources may be shared.

Files for 122 priests were made public last month by court order after priests fought for five years to keep them sealed.
