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.

B.Father1966PAccusedDiocesanIncluded in the CO A.G.'s report 10/22/19. Wichita priest, transferred to the Denver archdiocese in 1979, incardinated there in 1984. Allegation to Denver in 2008 that "Fr. B." molested a boy in KS 1966. The priest was said to have invited the boy to the rectory to study. Later in the evening the boy lay down on "Fr. B.s" bed; "Fr. B." lay next to him, then draped his leg over the boy's pelvic area. The boy got up and left the room. "Fr. B's" accuser said he knew of two other boys who he believed "Fr. B" abused in KS; both of the boys died by suicide later in life. The alleged victim did not want to participate in the Denver archdiocese's Conduct Response Team process. "Fr. B." was interviewed by the Team, and denied the abuse. He did acknowledge the boy sleeping over at the rectory and said the physical contact was accidental. The Team deemed the allegation unsubstantiated. "Fr. B.s" faculties remained intact, although he was on medical leave. He died in 2018.Wichita, KSSource:
