Fr. David Terrence Morgan
Diocese: Diocese of St. Augustine FL
The diocese announced to parishioners in 12/20 that Morgan was being investigated for multiple allegations. Morgan had gone on a six-month “sabbatical” in the summer of 2018 at St. Luke’s Institute; it appears that he did not return. In 9/20 someone reported to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office that Morgan had a sexual ‘relationship’ with a Bishop Kenny High School student in 1977. Morgan was a religion teacher at the school. No criminal charges due to the statute of limitations. In 2/21 Morgan was reportedly being investigated by the FL A.G. after the A.G. learned that the diocese did not disclose the local criminal investigations of him until after the A.G. had concluded it’s state-wide investigation in 11/20.
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.
