Fr. Rudi Gil
Gil arrived in the San Bernardino diocese from Canada in 1987. Accused in 1993 of sexual misconduct with a minor boy in 1987. Treated at Retreat in California (run by Servants of Paraclete) for “sexual identity issues.” Admitted during counseling that he had sexually abused a child. Left after about two weeks because treatment was ineffective. No criminal charges. Still performing ministry in 2002 even though privileges were removed in 1993. On San Bernardino diocese’s list 10/9/18. It noted that police were informed in 2002, and that Gil was removed from the priesthood.
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.
