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.

Anderson
Alexander R.1975PSettledDiocesanAccused in 2002 of abusing a boy in 1987 at St. Joseph's Home for Boys in St Louis, where Anderson was the chaplain. Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Naumann stated in 2002 that the archdiocese investigated the complaint and found it without merit. Anderson denied the allegation and filed a slander suit against the man making claim. Complainant then sued him. Both men dropped their lawsuits in 2004, with the archdiocese paying $22,500 for the complainant's counseling but admitting no wrongdoing. Another man came forward in 2004 to allege abuse in 1988. Naumann, then the archdiocesan administrator, voiced support for Anderson after an archdiocesan committee found the second allegation without merit. Anderson was pastor of St Rose of Lima church in De Soto as of 8/20/20. New suit in 2/20 claimed abuse of a boy in the late 1980s at the Home. The archdiocese deemed the allegation "without merit."St. Louis, MOSource:

On a trip to D.C. the boy awoke to Arsenault grinding his penis into him and kissing him. The victim went on to attempt suicide twice.
