Fr. Christopher T. Eggleton
Removed in 8/02 from assignment in the Baton Rouge, LA diocese after a civil suit was filed in Miami, alleging sexual abuse by Eggleton 1990-91 in FL. Also worked in New Orleans in 1993. The archdiocese announced in 7/04 that Eggleton was found “innocent of all charges by a Miami court” and was to begin work as prior for the Dominican House in Raleigh, NC.
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.
