Fr. Edouard J. Duval
Diocese: Diocese of Manchester NH
Named in the 3/03 New Hampshire Attorney General’s Report. Per his personnel file, there were complaints by parents of inappropriate behavior with boys at least since 1981 (the year he retired). In 2002 a woman accused him of abusing her son between 1979 and 1980 at St. Peter’s in Farmington. Duval’s first name is spelled Eduard in the report but appears as Edouard in the 1993 Catholic Directory and on his resignation letter. Duval died in 1992.
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.
