Fr. Ronald Belschner
Diocese: Archdiocese of Baltimore MD
The archdiocese announced in 8/19 that it had received an allegation that Belschner sexually abused a child in the mid-1970s, while assigned to St. Gregory the Great. He denied the allegations. Belschner went on leave of absence in 1991 and his faculties were permanently removed.
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.
