Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Raymond Devlin:

Fr. Raymond A. Devlin, S.J., was ordained a Jesuit priest and worked in the Diocese of Albany for approximately one year at the beginning of his priesthood. According to media reports, in 2002, the Diocese of Salt Lake announced that Devlin, a Jesuit, had been removed from ministry in 1990, due to an accusation of sexual abuse of a teenager in 1989. He was given new assignments that did not involve contact with children. The case was not prosecuted.

According to the 2002 Official Catholic Directory, Devlin left Utah in 1989 and was assigned to the San Diego Diocese in 1990. He lived at the Jesuit Center in Los Gatos, until his death in December 2011.

In December 2018, Devlin’s name first appeared publicly on the Diocese of Salt Lake City’s list of clergy credibly accused of sex abuse of minors. In April 2019, his name appeared publicly on the Diocese of Las Vegas list. Allegations of sexual abuse were noted to have been made in the Archdiocese of Louisville, as well.
