The Database of Publicly Accused Priests 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.

His accuser said she had contacted a nun with the Office of Child and Youth Protection around 2010, but no response. The woman alleged that, beginning when she was a first or second grader at a Midland parish in the 1980s, Kucharczyk would hug and kiss her on the cheek, hold her hand, give her small gifts, and once had her sit on his lap in a darkened classroom then put his arms around her waist and hands on her inner thighs. She said his behavior continued for years, including sending her "gushy and lovey" letters, emails and texts. He also officiated at her wedding where she said he kissed her on the lips.
