Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Joseph Calimari:

In 2007, Fr. Joseph Calimari was accused of sexual abuse of a minor. 

The lawsuit alleged Calimari abused a boy and the boy’s brother, while the boy was between 2 and 4 years old. The abuse took place at Christ the King Church in Perrine, Florida in the church office, a bedroom, and a school bus at the church in the 1960s. The boy’s older brother also remembered the assaults that took place however, he committed suicide in 2006.

Very little is known of Calimari’s activities within the church as the Archdiocese of Miami has not released any information about Calimari’s assignment history nor the year he was ordained.
