Diocese: Archdiocese of Baltimore MD

Appears in the 4/5/2023 MD Attorney General’s Report as # 148. Assigned in the 1960s and 1970s to Our Lady of Pompei in Highlandtown. In 2018 a woman reported to the Archdiocese that Fiorentino pressed himself against her breasts and buttocks multiple times during 1973-1977, when she was in elementary and middle school. Another woman said that when she was a student in 1975 or 1976, she confronted Fiorentino for grabbing students’ butts; she was suspended and the priest was sent away. Fiorentino is not listed in the Official Catholic Directory after 1976.

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.
