Fr. Jesus Suarez
Diocese: Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston TX
Removed from public ministry in late 3/19 after allegations that he had sexually abused children in Colombia, prior to his 1994 arrival in the U.S. Per the archdiocese, the abuse “may have resulted in the birth of children.” Two women said he abused them in Colombia in the 1980s; one said the abuse began when she was age 11, continued through her teen years, and resulted in the birth of a daughter.
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.
