Clergy Accused of Child Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese of Chicago
The following list includes the names of clergy members who were assigned or worked within the Archdiocese of Chicago and have been accused of sexual misconduct. While many of these alleged perpetrators have been the subject of lawsuits, most claims against them have been settled or have not been thoroughly evaluated in a civil or criminal court. Therefore, it is essential to note that the allegations should be considered just allegations and have not been proven or substantiated in a court of law.
It is important to remember that all individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. In some cases, the statute of limitations has expired, preventing legal action from being taken. The information provided here is an effort to gather information already available to the public. This includes information from sources such as the media, www.bishopaccountability.org, public statements from the Archdiocese, lists and reports released to the public, and other sources attempting to document this information for public use.
