Fr. Martin A. Horvath
Diocese: Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend IN
Named in a news report in 9/18 as having “possible” allegations against him. Not included on the diocese’s list of “both diocesan priests and members of religious orders who have been credibly accused of abuse by the diocese, after the cases were vetted by the diocesan review board.” Horvath died 9/20/2000.
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.
