Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Daniel Hoy:

Father Daniel Hoy was one of 21 priests placed on administrative leave by Cardinal Justin Rigali after the second grand jury report indicated that more than 30 priests still in active ministry had been accused of sexual abuse of minors.  

No details have been made public about the nature or context of the allegation(s) involving Hoy.  The date the Archdiocese of Philadelphia became aware of the allegation(s) is also not clear.

Hoy died not long after his suspension, and, as such, the Archdiocese’s internal review board suspended the investigation of the allegation(s) against him and made no determination if the allegation(s) is/are credible.  Therefore, his name does not appear on any of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s lists of credibly accused priests.

Hoy died in 2011.
