Diocese: Archdiocese of Boston MA

Left position as chaplain at Northeastern University to work as a priest in Peru, 1994-1999. Died in 9/00. Reportedly in 1/03, Fairbairn was accused for the first time in a recent lawsuit of abusing a 14-year-old boy in 1970. Per the Boston AD database in 8/11, no formal determination of guilt either because Fairbairn died prior to canonical investigation or it was not complete at his 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.
