Franciscan Releases Name of Another Priest Accused of Sex Abuse

April 16, 2019

Franciscan University of Steubenville has released another name of a priest accused of sex abuse.

Father Joseph Moore was there from 1986 to 1989.

After moving to another Diocese in Connecticut back in 1997, he was removed from the ministry for reports of abuse.

They did not involve his time in Steubenville however.

SNAP has responded saying, "We fear he could have also abused at the university while he was there.

We urge anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by Moore to come forward and contact law enforcement or the Ohio Attorney General no matter how long ago it happened."

You can contact the Steubenville Police Department at (740) 282-5353.
