Fr. J. Dennis Martin
Named publicly as accused by the Vincentian Order on its list in 2020. Multiple allegations of abuse occurring in the 1960s and 1980s were reported in 2003. Martin was removed from ministry. Assigned in 1995 to Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in St. Louis. Died in 2014. (The list does not indicate where the abuse is said to have occurred; placing Martin’s entry for now under St. Louis, where the Order is headquartered.)
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.
