Fr. Guy D. Marsico

Ordained: 1973
Status: Accused

Diocese: Diocese of Harrisburg PA

In 1994, a man told the diocese that he had been abused by Marsico in 1982 at age 13. Marsico was assigned to St. Leo the Great in Rohrerstown and later to St. Rose of Lima in York. Diocese investigated and removed Marsico from active ministry without privileges. Diocese arranged for Marsico to pay for man’s therapy and medication. It denied him any type of settlement because it said it had no knowledge of the sexual abuse at the time it happened. The man testified before a grand jury in 10/16 for the state A.G.’s investigation of 6 PA dioceses. He said that the D.A. in the late 1990s told him there were other Marsico victims. In 2011 Marsico was reportedly a Harrisburg travel agent. Name included on the diocese’s list released 8/1/18.

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.
