Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Fr. Claude Boudreaux:

Fr. Claude Boudreaux was ordained a priest of the Society of Jesus in 1955. He served in India, Sri Lanka, Louisiana, Texas, Italy, and in the Diocese of Shreveport. According to media reports, in December 2004, an accusation surfaced that Claude Boudreaux had sexually abused a minor almost 30 years prior. The Jesuit order removed Boudreaux from active ministry after determining the accusation was credible and sent him to extensive treatment. The Jesuits did not release any specific information about the alleged abuse or the gender/age of the victim who came forward.

Boudreaux was then assigned to live in Jesuit communities in New Orleans and Wisconsin without any access to minors.

Claude Boudreaux was included on the Jesuits’ Central and Southern list of credibly accused clergy in 2018 and on the Houma-Thibodaux diocese’s list in January of 2019. In December 2018, Fr. Boudreaux’s name was included in the Diocese of Shreveport’s “list of clergy that havebeen deemed credibly accused of sexual abuse or misconduct” under the heading “release of names of Jesuits removed for sexual abuse of minors: priests who served in the Diocese of Shreveport.”

Fr. Boudreaux died in 2016.
