Monsignor. Removed as pastor of St. Patrick in Newry in 3/13 pending investigation of an allegation that he sexually abused a boy in the 1990s. Had been pastor in Newry since 2002. DA’s office received notice from bishop on 3/21/13. Little admitted to the PA Grand Jury that he provided the boy many “amenities” for years, including a home, electronics and money. The GJ called Little a “master manipulator” who attempted to keep the victim from his family and friends, and in whose life he was a “near constant presence.”

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.
