Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Ramon Marrufo:

Fr. Ramon Marrufo was ordained a priest in 1976. Marrufo has been assigned to parishes in San Diego, Oceanside, Chula Vista, Vista, Fallbrook, and Escondido, California throughout his priesthood.

In June 2021, a lawsuit was filed by a man alleging abuse by Marrufo when he was a young boy. The abuse started when he was in second grade in Rialto, California. According to media reports, the plaintiff alleges he was molested over the course of several years starting in the 1970s.

The Diocese of San Diego along with the Diocese of San Bernardino and two San Bernardino County schools are listed as defendants in the lawsuit. The plaintiff alleges he was sexually abused by Marrufo and later by another priest in the two San Bernardino County schools.

A separate allegation has allegedly been made against Marrufo in which the Diocese confirmed there was a settlement made with the victim through its Independent Compensation Program that was established in 2019.

Marrufo was last assigned to St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Parish and School in Fallbrook, California. His current whereabouts and whether he has access to children are unknown.
