Had worked in the Dioceses/Archdioceses of Richmond VA, San Antonio TX and Philadelphia PA. Died in 6/93. In 2002 an allegation surfaced that Medaer molested a boy in 1982 while pastor of Our Lady of Guadelupe in Calexico. The diocese agreed to pay for his alleged victim’s counseling.
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.
