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.

LemireEdmund PSettledDiocesanOn 10/10/02 the Manchester diocese settled with 16 claimants. One of them, John Doe 12, alleged that Lemire, an extern from the Sherbrooke diocese in Quebec assigned to St Edmund's parish in Manchester, abused him in the early 1960s. Lemire exploited a common interest in magic and stamp collecting and fondled the boy under his bathing suit during an outing.

The other boy was forced to hold Lemire's penis and was 'abused many times.' He was later abused by Fr Roland Veilette and (as an adult) by Fr Karl E Dowd.

Multiple appeals but final ruling for plaintiff in 3/06, who died in 4/12.
