Fr. Joseph P. Reilly
Diocese: Archdiocese of Boston MA
Died in 6/92. According to documents released from his personnel file, Reilly was accused in 1999 of kissing and groping a 10- or 11-year-old altar boy and a 16-year-old altar boy one time each. Also accused of digitally raping a pre-pubescent girl once between 1961-1963. He was assigned to St. Agnes Parish in Milton during the relevant times. The 8/11 Boston AD database reports no formal determination of guilt either because he died prior to canonical or criminal investigation or it was not complete at his death.

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.
