Fr. David E. LeBlanc

Ordained: 1961
Status: Accused

Diocese: Diocese of Grand Rapids MI

LeBlanc resigned from his parish in 1/07 after admitting to Bishop Hurley that he had abused a pre-teen boy in 1971. The accusation was brought to the diocese in 1993 and LeBlanc admitted it then. Apparently then-Bishop Rose did nothing. Matter brought to light in 1/07 when the bishop reviewed personnel files. In 4/19 a man stated publicly that LeBlanc molested him at a Caledonia parish in 1999, when he was age 12. No prosecution due to the statute of limitations.

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.
