Fr. Denis G. Bouchard
Pastor of Queen of the Holy Rosary in Vienna. Member of the traditionalist Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter. Placed on leave in 11/18 after a man reported to the diocese 9/26 that Bouchard sexually abused him as a boy, ages 9-11. A previous allegation was revealed soon after the first became known, by a person unwilling to cooperate with investigators. Bouchard filed a libel suit against his accuser, his accuser’s mother and the diocese in 9/19.
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.
