Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Adrian Cristobal:
In April 2018, Father Adrian Cristobal was accused of sexual abuse of minors in two separate lawsuits. A month later, a third altar boy came forward with similar sexual misconduct allegations.
Among the allegations against Cristobal were that he sexually abused one boy for almost 18 years from 1995 through 2013. Another boy alleged that he was sexually abused from 1995 through 1997, starting at age 10.
Immediately after the lawsuits were filed Father Adrian, who had been working in the Diocese of Phoenix, was ordered to return to his home diocese in Guam.
A new lawsuit was filed against Cristobal in early July 2019. The suit alleges that Cristobal abused a boy from 2008 till 2010, from ages 12 to 14.
Cristobal’s current location is unknown. He is believed to have fled the United States permanently and may be residing in Guam or Canada.
