Fr. Robert Buchanan
Diocese: Diocese of San Diego CA
Sued in 2003. Accused of abuse of a girl in 1972 at University High School. ‘Retired’ just about the time the allegations became public. Had been working in Reno, Nevada for years but was still part of San Bernardino diocese when he retired. Reportedly in 2006 he was “no longer in the ministry.”
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.
