Fr. Martin H. Demek
Diocese: Archdiocese of Baltimore MD
Pastor from 2010 of Corpus Christi in Baltimore. In 4/21 the Archdiocese announced the suspension of Demek from ministry, due to an allegation that he sexually abused a child during 1989-94, beginning when the child was age 11. Demek was pastor of St. Bartholomew’s in Manchester, MD during the time of the alleged abuse. The allegation had been received in 1/21. Demek denied the charges.
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.
