Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Edito D’Amora:

Father Edito D. Amora (D’Amora) was ordained in the Philippines to the Diocese of Dipolog in 1980. According to media reports, in 1991, a 10-year-old girl accused Father Amora of sexually abusing her on two occasions while he was visiting her family home in San Diego in 1983. While the father also notified San Diego County authorities, it is unclear whether Father Amora was ever charged with a crime. 

In March 2007, his name appeared on the list of priests with credible allegations released by the Diocese of San Diego. As is his personnel file was among those released in October 2010, however, it is clear that his was one of the cases that was settled. The documents were released as part of a $200 million settlement San Diego reached with 144 victims. Father Amora was one of 48 priests named in the 10,000 pages.

According to court documents, Father Amora was among the priests and lay people the Diocese of Orange paid out a total of $100 million in settlements in 2005. His individual case was settled for $1.42 million. Whether the case outlined in the San Diego documents is the same one the Orange County diocese paid out is unclear. Father Amora’s current whereabouts and whether he has access to children is unknown, although it is believed that he has been living in Lake City, Florida since 2017.
