The abuse allegedly occurred during Mark Falvey’s visits with Arthur in Sacramento. Arthur Falvey died 2/23/66. On the Sacramento diocese’s list 4/30/19. It notes an allegation received in 2018 of rape of a boy under age 14 in the early 1960s. On the Jesuits West Province list 12/7/18.
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.
