Biller was reportedly described in complaints filed in 2003-04 by attorney Richard Serbin as one of 14 diocesan priests “having a sexual interest in children.” The others were: Gaborek, Kovach, Luddy, Skupien, Thomas Carroll, Inman, Robert Kelly, Grattan, McCaa, Bunn, John Boyle, McCamley, and Bender. When Biller retired in 2009, he was a monsignor and had been ecumenical minister and pastor of St Patrick’s in Johnstown, a parish with an elementary school. As of 3/3/16 he resided in a home for the elderly and disabled run by the Sister Servants of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus in Cresson, PA. Died 10/31/18. Added at some point to the diocese’s list, which notes allegations credible.

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.
