Fr. Jerry Sullivan
Per statement released by Diocese of Spokane in 11/07, Sullivan was the subject of an accusation that was found to be credible or proven. The diocese listed him in the category of Jesuit Clergy/Religious. It is unclear if Sullivan was a priest or religious brother. He was “dismissed.” As of 2/21, not included on the Jesuits’ lists.
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.
