Fr. Robert Loftus
Laicized in 1977. Name appears on list of priests with credible allegations of abuse of minors released by Archdiocese 12/5/13. Archdiocese qualifies inclusion by saying that he was credibly accused of sexual misconduct with a “young woman” in the early 1970s, but an independent investigation failed to determine if the woman was a minor. Was living in Coon Rapids, MN.
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.
