Sexual Abuse of Minors by Clergy - Diocesan Case Status
Diocese of Toledo Status Report
April 8, 2008
As of April 1, 2008, allegations of sexual abuse of minors have been made against 40 clerics in the Diocese of Toledo for the fifty-seven year period 1950-2007. All of these allegations have been reported to the appropriate civil authorities. Of these 40 clerics:
When even a single act of sexual abuse by a priest or deacon is admitted or is established after an appropriate process in accord with canon law, the offending priest or deacon will be removed permanently from ecclesiastical ministry, not excluding dismissal from the clerical state, if the case so warrants.
If an accusation is proven to be unfounded, every step possible will be taken to restore the good name of the cleric falsely accused.
Allegations range from credible to substantiated to admitted. By "credible" the Diocesan Sexual Abuse of Minors Policy states that "under all the circumstances known at the time of determination, a prudent person would conclude that there is a significant possibility that the incident occurred."
To report any suspected or actual sexual abuse of a minor by Diocesan personnel, immediate contact should be made with local civil authorities, and with the Toledo Diocesan Case Manager, Mr. Frank DiLallo. He can be reached at 419-243-2150 (private Line) or 419-244-6711, ext 632 in the Toledo calling area, or 1-800-926-8277, ext 632 (Outside Toledo, Within Ohio).
