Fr. Justin N. Werner
Diocese: Diocese of Green Bay WI
Retired in 2010. Had been assisting at St. Bernard Parish in Appleton when temporarily removed without privileges in 4/13 after allegation that he had abused a minor while at St. Edward Parish in Mackville in the 1970s. He denied the allegations. County authorities were notified and the diocese investigated. Allegation determined to be unsubstantiated. Restrictions removed in 6/13.
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.
