Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Daniel E Carter:

According to media reports, in 2002, Daniel E Carter was accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl in the late 1970s when she was a student at Notre Dame des Victoires Elementary School in San Francisco, California. He was accused of fondling her as a child. According to media reports, at the time of the abuse, Carter was not yet ordained. The abuse occurred when he was a Marist Brother. In 2002, after Carter was accused of molesting an 8-year-old girl in the late 1970s, he was placed on leave.

Just four months prior to filing suit, the victim reported the incident to the Archdiocese of San Francisco. The Archdiocese did nothing when learning about the allegation until the victim filed suit.

After 8 months on administrative leave, Carter was reinstated despite the pending lawsuit since the archdiocesan review board had deemed the case “inconclusive”.

As of 2020, Carter remains a parish pastor in San Francisco.
