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.

John James1967PAccusedDiocesanCharges of sexual misconduct against Keehan date back to between1967-1974 during his first assignment at St. Basil (later St. Basil/Visitation). Removed from public ministry 6/02. Archdiocese had determined years ago there was "reasonable cause to believe" that Keehan (and others removed at same time) had abused children. Keehan said he would appeal the decision. Computer taken away from Keehan in 9/10 as he was accessing numerous social networking sites, most child-oriented. In 1/13 archdiocese recommended he enroll in a technology course to prevent his continued reliance on his "ignorance" of technology to avoid accountability re internet use.
