Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Joseph Sheehan:

In 2019, Fr. Joseph Sheehan was included on a list of priests in the Diocese of Monterey who was named as being “credibly accused” of child sex abuse. Very little is known of Sheehan’s activities within the church as the Diocese of Monterey has not released any information about Sheehan’s assignment history. In addition, information about the age/gender of his alleged victims, the nature of the alleged sexual abuse, or Sheehan’s assignments at the time of the alleged abuse is unknown.

It is only noted that there was a report received in 1992 against Fr. Joseph Sheehan in reference to abuse that took place from 1971-1975.

Although the year is unknown, Sheehan is deceased.
