Summary of Abuse Allegations against Deacon Charles Ginn:

Deacon Charles Ginn was ordained a deacon in 2001. He taught history at the prestigious Jesuit St. Joseph’s Prep School for 29 years. According to media reports, in November 2005, he was removed from his position following allegations that he had inappropriately kissed and hugged three students in 1996 while he was a counselor. At the time, he had admitted the misconduct to the school, which forced him to undergo psychiatric evaluation and treatment. He was deemed not to be a threat to students, and was not reassigned.
