In 5/2007 a woman told the Diocese that Derylo touched her daughter when she was age 5 or 6. The woman said she had been in a sexual relationship with Derylo 1985 and into the 1990s, which Derylo confirmed, and that her daughter had recently told her of the ‘touching.’ The daughter wasn’t sure how many times, but remembered one incident that allegedly occurred while Derylo was putting her pajamas on her.

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.
