ACCUSED BOSTON CLERICS
Revised November 21, 2011

This page presents BishopAccountability.org's current tally of 276 accused clerics who worked in the Boston archdiocese. For more information about the priests on our list, please consult the BishopAccountability.org accused priest database. The list below includes clerics who worked their entire careers in Boston, and it also includes clerics who worked in several dioceses, including Boston.

This is a list of accused priests, not a list of guilty or convicted priests. Some of the priests on this list have been sent to jail for sexually abusing minors. Others have denied the charges against them and will never be prosecuted because the statute of limitations has lapsed. In our legal system, an accused person is considered innocent until proven guilty. Most of the priests are accused of offending in the Boston archdiocese. Some are accused of offending elsewhere, but worked in the Boston archdiocese as well.

Some other lists and counts of accused Boston priests are:
- USA Today 11/11/02 list of accused priests: 61 named priests
- Reilly report 7/23/03 count: 237 unnamed priests [PDF p. 19]
- Boston Globe 3/5/03 list of priests removed: 48 named priests
- Boston John Jay 2/26/04 count: 216 unnamed priests: 162 diocesan, 44 order, 10 extern
- Garabedian 1/19/11 list of priests with settlements against them: 117 priests, including 19 newly identified
- Boston archdiocesan list of 8/25/11: 159 archdiocesan priests named; 250 archdiocesan priests counted
- Boston Globe 11/20/11 list: 70 priests not included in the 8/25/11 Boston archdiocesan list [see also the Globe article]

Note that the Boston archdiocesan and Boston Globe lists do not together provide a complete accounting of accused priests who have worked in the Boston archdiocese. The names currently known that are missing from those lists are indicated below with a red >. Those ommitted names currently total 47, but the actual number is certainly higher.
