Reportedly in 8/2003, a man claimed Paul molested him at age 15 for three weeks as he lay in a hospital with burns suffered in a house fire. He said he told his mom at the time but she was afraid to tell. Paul was hospital chaplain. Sources say the Archdiocese settled a similar case by another man but an Archdiocese spokesman said they “are not aware of that.” Included in a 10/2005 settlement between the Archdiocese and 43 plaintiffs involving 14 priests. Two men filed suit 9/29/2008 claiming abuse by Paul at the same hospital. New suit filed in 6/2012. Included on the Archdiocese’s list 1/22/2019. It notes that Paul was removed from ministry 2/21/1996, and died 7/4/2008.

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.
