The California Child Victims Act

On September 14, 2019, the California Child Victims Act was signed into law. The Act reformed the statute of limitations and opened a window for previously time-barred survivors of child sexual abuse to seek accountability and compensation in civil courts for the pain and suffering they’ve carried for decades. The California Child Victims Act window closed on December 31, 2022.

Clergy Accused of Child Sexual Abuse in the Diocese of Sacramento

The list below contains the names of clergy who were assigned within or working in the California Diocese of Sacramento who have been accused of sexual misconduct. While lawsuits were filed involving many of these alleged perpetrators, the vast majority of the claims against these individuals have been settled or have not been fully evaluated in a civil or criminal court. Accordingly, the allegations should be considered just allegations and should not be considered proved or substantiated in a court of law.

All individuals should be considered innocent until proven guilty. In some situations, the statute of limitations has expired preventing cases from being heard in a court of law.
