Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Raul Diaz:

In May 2019, a police investigation centered around Father Raul Diaz, who was a longtime pastor of Saint Catherine’s Catholic Church in Dinuba, California. The investigation came after allegations of inappropriate behavior and possible misconduct with minors were made against Diaz. He was reportedly placed on paid administrative leave pending the investigation. 

More than two months later, the charges were dropped against Raul Diaz and he was allowed to return to his position at St. Catherine’s.

Diaz claims that he was never told specifics of the allegations made against him or who may have made them.
