Fr. Kenneth Farabaugh
Diocese: Archdiocese of Baltimore MD
Archdiocese learned of allegations from a third party in 1993. Individual denied making the accusations and Farabaugh also denied, so matter dropped. In 2000 the same individual met with the archdiocese and provided detailed allegations of sexual abuse. Farabaugh was under investigation by police and the archdiocese at time of his death in car accident in 12/00. (His car ran off the road and struck a tree). Name appeared on Baltimore’s 9/26/02 list of abusers.
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.
