Fr. Odo Muggli
Assumption Abbey Benedictine in Richardton. Included in the ND Attorney General’s report in 1/21. Allegedly abused a minor, ages 13-17, beginning in 1971. A.G. found probable cause to prosecute, but not possible due to the statute of limitations. The investigation found that the Abbey and Diocese received a report in 1991 of the allegations against Muggli. Per the Abbey, Muggli has since been on a “safety plan,” working in the Abbey’s business office and not in ministry.
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.
