Visiting priest from Spain. A former altar boy sued Carrera in 2002 alleging that the priest molested him in 1981 at Our Lady of Divine Providence Church in west Miami-Dade when he was 13. Also said the Diocese transferred Carrera back to Spain when it learned of the abuse. Second suit filed in 5/11 alleged abuse of a 10-year-old boy in 1976 at the same parish. Appeals court upheld lower court’s dismissal on SOL 4/17/13. Carrera had lived in Spain since the early 1980s.

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.
