Fr. Daniel C. Keohane
Diocese: Archdiocese of Oklahoma City OK
A woman alleged in a lawsuit that her father abused her and she acquired multiple personality disorder, and that she was molested by Keohane 1967-70 when she sought counseling from him. She claimed repressed memory until 1987. Suit dismissed on SOL by US District Court in Tulsa; she appealed. The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in 2/92 that her diagnosis did not stop the SOL because she knew she had psychological problems but still graduated from college with honors and ran own business for years. Keohane died in 1/99.
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.
