Fr. Antonio M. Girardin
Diocese: Diocese of Portland ME
Documents produced with the 2005 Maine AG report show at least four allegations of abuse against Girardin. One woman complained that he abused her in 1943 when she was in 5th grade. The other three complaints were by men who said they were abused as children in the 1960s. Girardin died in 1974.
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.
