Order: OFM
Ordained: 1956
Status: Sued

Diocese: Diocese of Albany NY

A woman filed civil suit in 2004 alleging abuse by Di Pasquale at a Schenectady home for troubled teens between 1979 and 1982. The suit claimed that the order and diocese knew as early as 1976 that Di Pasquale had molested children, yet continued to allow him to work with children. He was working as a priest in Florida at the time of his 12/04 death.

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.
