Fr. James Prindeville was named in a civil lawsuit in 2003, which alleged that he sexually abused a 16-year-old girl at Bishop O’Dowd High School between 1952 and 1953. Fr. Prindeville left the priesthood at some point after 1961 and married and is believed to have lived in San Jose until his death in 2004. After leaving the priesthood, he continued his association with the religious world by assisting former priests and religious with their resumes and job networking.
