Fr. Ramon Gomez
Diocese: Diocese of Fresno CA
Named publicly as accused by the Archdiocese of San Antonio on its list 1/31/19. Ordained for the Diocese of Tapachula, Mexico. Extern priest in the Diocese of Fresno 1980-81. Worked in the San Antonio diocese at two parishes, one in Carrizo Springs, 1984-87. Dismissed after law enforcement from California informed the archdiocese that Gomez was accused of child sex abuse in that state. Gomez moved to Jalisco, Mexico, and would return to Carrizo Springs without faculties or permission for priestly ministry, despite the objections of the parish pastor and letter from the archbishop to Tapachula’s bishop. In 1991 a teenage boy reported that he and two others had been abused by Gomez during a visit to Carrizo Springs. The archdiocese deemed the allegations credible, and informed law enforcement. Included in 2021 on the Diocese of Fresno’s list of credibly accused.
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.
