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.

Timothy (Fr Timo)1986PAccusedO.S.B.Former headmaster of St. John's Preparatory School from 2006 until 2013. Parents of a former member of the St. John's Boys' Choir came forward 5/14 to allege that Backous had inappropriate sexual contact with their son during the Choir's 1990 bus trip across Europe. The parents originally learned of the abuse in approx. 1991 and went to the Abbot. The Abbot paid for their son's counseling and apparently told the parents that Backous would no longer work with children and youths. Sheriff told Parents he had no authority because abuse took place in Europe. Parents learned 5/24/14 that he had said mass at Memorial Day weekend at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis and immediately wrote to the Archbishop. Current Abbot of St John Abbey wrote 6/10/14 that allegations had never been proven and that Backous was not working under any restrictions but was a priest in good standing. He also worked at Essentia Health in Duluth.St. Cloud, MNSource:
