Diocese investigation deemed the accusation “not credible” and Malloy was still an active priest as of 2009. Malloy was included in a 2001 global settlement of claims by 26 people against the diocese and 5 priests over the years. Total settlement was about $15M. Died 1/7/16. In 2019 a 55 -year-old man told a news outlet that when he was age 6, Malloy raped him at St. James in Stratford. The man told the diocese a year earlier and said he asked them to pay for his therapy but was only offered $5K. The man also alleged abuse by Revs. Raymond Pcolka and Joseph Murphy.

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.
