Fr. Martin D. McCamley

Ordained: 1962
Status: Settled

Diocese: Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown PA

Per PA AG’s 3/1/16 Grand Jury Report, in 1981 Bishop Hogan dismissed a report that McCamley fondled a 16-year-old boy, then allowed the priest to be Vice-Principal of Bishop McCort High. Another report made in 2001 of fondling of 13-year-old boy prior to 1977, on overnights in the boy’s home. The boy had been molested by McCamley’s sex partner, Fr. James Bunn. Bunn apparently passed the boy off to McCamley. McCamley was sent for evaluations in 2001 and 2003. Suspended in 2003 after accusations by 4 men of abuse while at McCourt High and St. Patrick’s in Johnstown. Retired to Orlando FL in 2004. Another accusation in 2008 of abuse of boy decades earlier, while assigned to St. Patrick’s.

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.
