In 2005, Fr. Konstanty Przybylski was arrested and charged for the sexual abuse of two minor boys at St. Cecilia’s Church in Port Dover, Ontario, Canada between 1995 and 2000. Przybylski was charged with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of sexual exploitation, one count of sexual interference and one count of sexual touching. He was sentenced to five years in prison. Przybylski sexually abused the minors at his home at the time in Ontario, and on trips to Chicago, Rome, and Poland. On trips to Chicago, Przybylski told the boys he had been assigned there for years before being sent to Canada. In 2006, both victims filed civil lawsuits naming Przybylski and the Diocese of London. Przybylski was later laicized from the priesthood. His current status as a priest, his whereabouts, and whether he has access to children are unknown.
