Fr. Robert Marquitz
Diocese: Archdiocese of St. Louis MO
In 6/20 the archdiocese announced that it had received allegations of child sexual abuse against Marquitz, which it deemed substantiated. Marquitz had at some point been removed from ministry and laicized. Known as a champion soccer player in the 1950s and 1960s. Per a St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame bio, Marquitz went on to coach at the parish and select levels, as well as for Special Needs Kids (SPENSA) and at the St. Louis Soccer Park.
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.
