Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Bruce Sherrid:

Bruce Sherrid, 61, was a band volunteer at Lebanon Catholic High School in 2015. Following a Megan’s Law verification sweep of Lebanon county, Sherrid was arrested when he communicated with an undercover agent and tried to meet a minor student at a fast-food restaurant in Susquehanna Township. Court documents say he drove through the drive-through and left, then returned after an agent he thought was a child called his cellular phone.

Sherrid was let go from Lebanon Catholic High but was also a third-grade teacher at another nearby school. Sherrid is on the Youth Protection List of Credibly Accused Non-Clergy connected to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg and currently lives in Lebanon, PA.

Horowitz Law is a law firm representing victims of sexual abuse in the Diocese of Harrisburg and throughout Pennsylvania.  The Diocese of Harrisburg filed for federal bankruptcy protection in February 2020. Anyone sexually abused by a priest or employee of the Diocese of Harrisburg may be entitled to file a claim against the Diocese in these bankruptcy proceedings, but very strict filing deadlines apply.  Most victims of abuse in the Diocese of Harrisburg will never be able to take action against the Diocese of Harrisburg if they miss this bankruptcy filing deadline, so it is important that you contact us immediately to discuss your potential case.
