Diocese: Archdiocese of San Francisco CA

A woman filed a police report in 2002 accusing Carter of sexual impropriety when she was a student at Notre Dame des Victoires elementary school in the late 1970s and he was a Marist brother. The archdiocese investigated, found allegations inconclusive and allowed Carter to remain active. The woman filed a civil suit in 8/02 and Carter was placed on leave. In 4/08 the archdiocese allowed him to return to active ministry, saying again that the charges were inconclusive. Carter retired in 7/21.

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.
