The Database of Publicly Accused Priests does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations.The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty.Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise.Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.For more information, see our posting policy.

A man seeking to train as a deacon said he told Bishop Hoeppner in 2010 that Grundhaus sexually abused him in 1971 on a trip to Ohio, when the man was a 16-yr-old boy. The man filed suit against Hoeppner and the diocese in 5/17, claiming Hoeppner blackmailed him by telling him to keep it quiet or he would not become deacon and that his priest-son's career would be harmed. He said Hoeppner had him sign a letter in 2015 rescinding the allegation against Grundhaus. The man said he signed it to protect his son, a Crookston priest. The diocese denied coercion, and said they reported Grundhaus' abuse allegations to police in 2011. Attorney Jeff Anderson said Grundhaus' name was not on a court-ordered list of accused priests given to his office in 10/15. Grundhaus suspended as of 5/17.
