Fr. Thomas Henderson
Diocese: Diocese of Portland ME
The 2005 Maine AG report includes one claim that Henderson attempted to rape a 13- or 14-year old boy in Richmond in 1945 or 1946. Henderson’s accuser said there may have been more than one assault but he didn’t remember because he and the priest were drunk. Deceased.
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.
