Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father William B Cannon:

Father William B Cannon was recently included on the Diocese of Camden list of priests who were named as being “credibly accused” of child sex abuse. Other than his assignments and the year of his ordination, the Diocese of Camden provided no information about the nature or number of allegations against Cannon.

According to Bishop Sullivan, the list, “includes those who admitted to the abuse, those who were found guilty after a trial in the church courts or the civil courts, and others against whom the evidence was so overwhelming as to be virtually unquestionable.”

According to the Diocese of Camden, Cannon is deceased.
