Fr. Myles P. White was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Joliet in 1968. At least five survivors have accused Fr. White of child sexual abuse. In 1992, Fr. White’s abusive behavior first came to light after he accidentally donated a video tape to a garage sale which contained a video of him sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy. Fr. White was subsequently removed from ministry. In 1993, Fr. White pled guilty to child sexual abuse and was sentenced to four years in prison, but only served 21 months. In 1995, a lawsuit was filed against Fr. White which accused him of sexually abusing a boy at St. Boniface from 1982 to 1988, when the boy was 6 to 12 years old. Since then, five other lawsuits have been filed that accuse Fr. White of child sexual abuse. Fr. White was named on the Diocese of Joliet’s list of Diocese of Joliet’s list of “Diocesan Priests with Credible Allegation(s) of Sexual Misconduct with Minors Made Against Them While Serving in the Diocese of Joliet” with “Substantiated Allegations.” Fr. White’s last known address was believed to be in Indiana, but his current status as a priest, his whereabouts, and whether he has access to children are unknown.
