Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Charles Moore:

In 2019, Fr. Charles Moore 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 Moore’s activities within the church as the Diocese of Monterey has not released any information about Moore’s assignment history. In addition, information about the age/gender of his alleged victims, the nature of the alleged sexual abuse, or Moore’s assignments at the time of the alleged abuse is unknown.

According to media reports, Moore graduated from Stanford University and Law School in 1954, he was elected District Attorney in Santa Cruz County. After leaving that position, Father Charlie devoted his full attention to religious studies and in 1964 was ordained a Roman Catholic priest.

It is only noted that there was a report received in 2003 against Fr. Charles Moore in reference to abuse that took place in 1974. According to media reports, although the year is not indicated, Moore retired from ministry but continued to share his spiritual journey with others. In 2006, he published a book.

The following year, in 2007, Moore died.
