Faculties removed in 1987 after an allegation of abuse. LeFevre admitted to having engaged in sexual misconduct with numerous minors in the 1970s and 1980s. He continued to work as a statistics expert for the archdiocese until 1995, when a lawsuit alleged LeFevre abused a minor, age 11 until high school. This abuse was reported to the archdiocese in 1992.
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.
