Fr. Louis M. Diogo
Diocese: Diocese of Providence RI
Retired and moved out of state 1993 after his cousin told diocese he had abused her and her sister in the 1950s and 1960s. Not charged criminally but diocese found the woman to be credible. In 2005 diocese learned from the woman that he had returned to Rhode Island and was saying mass. Diocese immediately told him that he could not say mass or function as a priest. Died 4/4/15. On diocese’s list 7/1/19.
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.
