Fr. Jose Aviles
Diocese: Archdiocese of San Antonio TX
In 2002 Aviles was director of Assumption Seminary’s vocation office. Removed from parish assignment in 2/04 over accusations involving an incident with a teenage boy in 1985, shortly before Aviles entered seminary. Complaint received 8/03; not immediately removed because the incident occurred prior to his ordination and archdiocese not sure canon law applied. After archdiocese found the allegation to be “substantive,” Aviles was sent for long-term residential psychological treatment. A second allegation in 2004, of abuse of a teenage boy in 1994. Police notified. Permanently removed from ministry. Died in 2008. On archdiocese’s list 1/31/19.
Our Database of Publicly Accused 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.
