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.

Anderson
Alexander R. 1975 P Settled Diocesan Accused in 2002 of abusing a boy in 1987 at St. Joseph's Home for Boys in St Louis, where Anderson was the chaplain. Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Naumann stated in 2002 that the archdiocese investigated the complaint and found it without merit. Anderson denied the allegation and filed a slander suit against the man making claim. Complainant then sued him. Both men dropped their lawsuits in 2004, with the archdiocese paying $22,500 for the complainant's counseling but admitting no wrongdoing. Another man came forward in 2004 to allege abuse in 1988. Naumann, then the archdiocesan administrator, voiced support for Anderson after an archdiocesan committee found the second allegation without merit. Anderson was pastor of St Rose of Lima church in De Soto as of 8/20/20. New suit in 2/20 claimed abuse of a boy in the late 1980s at the Home. The archdiocese deemed the allegation "without merit."

B. Father 1966 P Accused Diocesan Included in the CO A.G.'s report 10/22/19. Wichita priest, transferred to the Denver archdiocese in 1979, incardinated there in 1984. Allegation to Denver in 2008 that "Fr. B." molested a boy in KS 1966. The priest was said to have invited the boy to the rectory to study. Later in the evening the boy lay down on "Fr. B.s" bed; "Fr. B." lay next to him, then draped his leg over the boy's pelvic area. The boy got up and left the room. "Fr. B's" accuser said he knew of two other boys who he believed "Fr. B" abused in KS; both of the boys died by suicide later in life. The alleged victim did not want to participate in the Denver archdiocese's Conduct Response Team process. "Fr.
