Community Notification Statements
Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix
October 15, 2012
[See also a PDF of this diocesan webpage as of October 18, 2012. Note that this page and the lists that are linked from it do not include Bro. Richard Suttle CMF, although the diocese had issued a community notification about him, stating on December 18, 2010, that the Claretian order had found an allegation of abuse committed in the Diocese of Phoenix to be credible. The diocese had previously done its own investigation and sent the results to the Claretians. The Phoenix notification is apparently no longer on the diocesan website. Our link is to a cached copy in our files. Suttle is listed in the notification as having had the following assignments in the Phoenix diocese:
- 1982-1983 Sacred Heart School, Prescott AZ, teacher and coach (allegedly abused a boy here)
- 1988-1998 Bourgade Catholic High School, Phoenix AZ, teacher and coach
- 2006-2008 Sacred Heart School, Prescott AZ, principal]
When a criminal charge involving a minor is filed or a credible accusation against a member of the Church concerning a minor is established, the Diocese of Phoenix immediately alerts the public through a Community Notification Statement on its website.
