Ordained: 1969
Status: Accused

Diocese: Archdiocese of Milwaukee WI

A man told the Archdiocese in 3/04 of sexual abuse in the early 1980s. Schreiter said that the person was an adult at the time and denied all claims. Matter referred to AG’s office which said statute had expired. Archdiocese continued investigation. In 8/04 the Review Board deemed the allegation unsubstantiated and Schreiter was reinstated. Removed again 6/10/12 due to a different sexual abuse allegation, involving a minor. He was scheduled to retire in two weeks and did so. Quietly reinstated again in 1/13.

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.
