Texas Priest Sex Abuse List: A list of Roman Catholic Priests & Clergy members of the Texas Diocese accused of sex abuse and/or sexual assault of minors.

Contact Merson Law

Merson Law has compiled a list of Roman Catholic Priests and Clergy members (the Texas priest sex abuse list) accused of sexual abuse and/or sexual assault of minors. The Sexual Assault team at Merson Law specializes in Catholic Clergy and Priest Sex Abuse and Sexual Assault cases.

This information found in this list is compiled from the Database of Publicly Accused Priests and 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.

Texas Priest Sex Abuse List

Merson Law’s Texas Priest Sex Abuse List was compiled from accounts of sexual abuse by a member of the Texas Catholic Church network. The names in this list are only those that have been found to be credible, however it is likely that there are names missing, due to the sheer number of accounts and the historical aversion to transparency by the Catholic Church.

This list is not endorsed by the Archdiocese, which has yet to release the names of priests found guilty through its own internal investigations.
