Fr. Guido Caverzan
Accused in a 7/18/77 letter to Order of sexually abusing three boys. A 10/11/94 memo refers to two other allegations. In 1/03 a man brought suit claiming abuse in the mid-1970s. Those documents were publicly filed later in 2003, and on 2/26/04 Caverzan was accused in a lawsuit of sexually abusing a boy, age 10-12, in the NY archdiocese, beginning in 1966. Removed from parish in Venice FL. Died 9/28/94 in Caracas at Order’s headquarters. Omitted from 2011 Boston AD database because he was Order priest.
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.
