Fr. Gerald A. Mahon

Ordained: 1971
Status: Settled

Diocese: Diocese of Winona-Rochester MN

Vicar General and former director of Vocations for Diocese. Accused of improprieties by two seminarians in cases that were never publicized and were settled out of court and sealed in the early 1990s. Both settlements involved under $100K, mostly for counseling. One involved a seminarian who also implicated priests in 2-3 other dioceses. Other involved seminarian’s allegations against Mahon, three other bishop and another vicar general. This was resolved by offer of counseling and career training.

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.
