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.

By 2005, Vicar General McDonough of St Paul and Minneapolis was aware that at least one of those women was 'as young as 17,' and that some of the women whom Foley 'exploited' were known to Foley through Retrouvaille, a marriage renewal program. Foley had been a leader of Retrouvaille at least from 1984 to 2005. He was laicized on 9/22/06. In the 1960s and 1970s, he had been Director of Crookston's Catholic Social Services Association, and for a year or two in the late 1970s he was the Executive Director of the National Catholic Rural Life Conference, based in Des Moines IA. Foley was transferred in 1985 from the Diocese of Crookston to the Archdiocese of St Paul and Minneapolis, where he was a chaplain at St Joseph Hospital in St Paul until about 2004. In these years he was listed by Crookston as 'on duty outside the diocese.'Crookston, MNSource:
