The Database of Publicly Accused Priests is a way to expose priests in California and throughout the country who have faced or are currently facing accusations of child and youth sexual crimes. The database divides allegations according to state and diocese. The numbers for the Diocese of Sacramento show 48 individuals with histories of potential sexual misconduct.
The names of the individuals with convictions in the Diocese of Sacramento are Hector Coria Gonzales, Robert Marsicek, James Thomas Monaghan, Uriel Ojeda, and Jose Luis Urbina. Accusations within the diocese range from teenage sexual abuse to possession of child pornography. The database is one way to shed light on the prevalence of clergy abuse. Another is to file a civil lawsuit as a survivor.
If you have a case against the Diocese of Sacramento, an injury lawsuit may not be your only outlet for recovery. This diocese is one of six that joined together to create California’s Independent Compensation Program. Under this program, clergy abuse survivors can file claims for monetary awards with no statute of limitations.
