Fr. George F. Bailey
Diocese: Diocese of Cleveland OH
Left the priesthood in the late1980s. Per 2002 news, at least 10 women had accused him of abusing them when they were grade-school students at St. Vincent School in Akron and St. Mary’s School in Bedford. Apparently these accusations were made known to the Diocese before Bailey left the priesthood. Laicization announced in 3/14.
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.
