Fr. Robert B. Cullen was a member of the Jesuit religious order. In the late 1960s, a mother reported to the Jesuits
that Fr. Cullen had repeatedly sexually abused her elementary school-aged daughter over the span of a couple years. The
survivor came forward in 2007, and in front of the Maryland legislature, alleged that Fr. Cullen sexually abused her for years
in the 1960s. The survivor further stated that she was not the only one who Fr. Cullen sexually abused. In 2018, the Jesuits
reported multiple allegations of sexual abuse against Fr. Cullen from the 1960s to the 1980s. Fr. Cullen was included on the
Jesuit Maryland Province list of “Jesuits with an allegation of an offense against a minor (anyone under the age of 18) that
could not be fully investigated to determine credibility, but for which there is a reasonable possibility (semblance of truth)
that the alleged offense occurred.”
