Fr. John Kevin McAndrews

Ordained: 1949
Status: Sued

Diocese: Archdiocese of Boston MA

Accused in a 2002 lawsuit of abuse of a boy, age 11-12, in the late 1960s at St. Anthanasius Church in Reading, MA. The abuse allegedly went on for a year. McAndrews died in 1986 at age 63. The Boston AD 8/11 database reports no formal determination of guilt either because McAndrews died prior to canonical investigation or it was not complete at his death.

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.
