Fr. Leonard Scezney
Diocese: Archdiocese of Denver CO
Named publicly as accused in the CO A.G. report 10/22/19. In 3/07 the archdiocese received a report that Scezney had sexually abused a 16-year-old girl in about 1985. The girl was a member of the parish youth group at Spirit of Christ in Arvada, where Scezney was assigned. Scezney allegedly took the girl to dinner, was increasingly affectionate toward her, then fondled her breasts under her shirt on multiple occasions. Scezney’s faculties were removed by the archdiocese in 1992.

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.
