List of Jesuits with Credible Accusations of Sexual Abuse of a Minor

Feb. 27, 2020 - The Jesuits U.S. Central and Southern Province in Dec. 2018 released a list of Jesuits with credible allegations of sexual abuse of a minor. At that time, the province also announced that Kinsale Management Consulting, Inc. had been retained to review the personnel files of Jesuits who are or were members of the U.S. Central and Southern Province or its predecessors as of Jan. 1, 1955. The Kinsale review has been completed and with the assistance of the province Review Board, the province today adds four names to the list of credibly accused Jesuits. In addition, one Jesuit’s name has been moved from the list of men with a single allegation to the list of more than one allegation. 

The changes are: 

•    Br. Everard J. Booth, SJ – more than one allegation
•    José Angel Borges, SJ – a single allegation
•    James D. Loeffler, SJ – more than one allegation
•    Vincent R. Malatesta, SJ – moved from the single allegation to the more than one allegation list
•    Benjamin Smylie, SJ – more than one allegation

Reporting Abuse

The province urges anyone who experienced sexual abuse as a minor to report the offense to the law enforcement or child protective services in the locale where the abuse happened. Survivors are also encouraged to advise the Jesuits by calling Carol Zarinelli Brescia, Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She can be reached confidentially by phone at 314-915-7168 or email at ucsoutreach@jesuits.org.

Dec. 7, 2018 - The Jesuits U.S. Central and Southern Province today released a list of names of Jesuits with credible allegations of sexual abuse of a minor. This list contains the names of the Jesuits who are or were members of the U.S. Central and Southern (UCS) Province and its predecessor entities: the New Orleans Province, the Missouri Province, or the Independent Region of Puerto Rico of the Society of Jesus.

These men fall into one of three categories: 

  • Jesuits of this province against whom one or more credible claims of sexual abuse of a minor or a vulnerable adult have been made; 
  • Jesuits from other provinces against whom there are credible claims resulting from their work while assigned to this province; 
  • Jesuits of this province whose names have been published on diocesan websites or the websites of other Jesuit provinces.

This list is based on investigations that have been completed. Jesuits with allegations that are currently being investigated have not been included on this list. Inclusion on this list does not imply that the allegations are true and correct or that the accused individual has been found guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. 

Additional information about each man follows the initial list. While a list of each man’s assignments is included, it is important to note that the allegations do not necessarily stem from any of the listed assignments.

* Until the fall of 1990, Regis University and Regis High shared the same campus and Jesuits assigned to either work lived in the same community. However, Jesuits who were assigned to the high school did not normally work in the university and those assigned to the university did not normally work in the high school.
