Fr. Vogt is a Dominican priest who worked in the Diocese of Oakland, Archdiocese of San Francisco, and Archdiocese of Portland. In February 2016, Fr. Vogt was accused of sexually abusing an altar boy for several years at Holy Rosary Church in Portland. The alleged abuse was said to have taken place over 20 years ago, in the mid-to late 1980s. The accuser claims he told other priests about the abuse at the time; in response, they allegedly told him to obey Fr. Vogt. As of 2017, Fr. Vogt remained an active priest in Oakland, CA.
