Fr. Michael Weston was ordained in 1973. A few years after he was ordained the Archdiocese received allegations of child sexual abuse by Fr. Weston but no action was taken and he was allowed to remain in ministry. In 1992 Fr. Weston admitted to the abuse and resigned in 1993. At least three survivors have accused Fr. Weston of child sexual abuse. Fr. Weston was laicized in 2009 and is included on the Archdiocese of Chicago’s list of “Clergy with Substantiated Allegations of Sexual Misconduct with Minors.” Fr. Weston’s current whereabouts and whether he has access to children are unknown.
