Fr. Charles White
Diocese: Diocese of Brooklyn NY
In 8/19 the diocese announced that it had deemed credible an allegation that White sexually abused a minor 1974-78, while assigned to American Martyrs Church in Queens. The allegation was made via a reporting line 3/29/18 and law enforcement was notified. During the investigation it was discovered that that another allegation had been made 2/1/99, and in 4/04 the diocese determined it was not credible. The case was reopened and, this time, the allegations deemed credible. White was permanently removed from ministry 7/1/19.
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.
