Status: Accused

Diocese: Diocese of Pittsburgh PA

First named publicly as accused in 8/14/18 PA Grand Jury Report. Died 2014. In 7/08 a 43-year-old man told the diocese that when he was in 3rd grade in 1973, McIlvane orally copulated him, then gave him $5.00. He said the behavior continued at least 40 times per year 1973-77. Diocesan Review Board determined the allegation could not be substantiated. The diocese gave the man $5,000., which was not meant to be a settlement related to the claim.

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.
