Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father John Kean:
Father John Kean was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Buffalo. According to media reports, in 2020, he was accused in a lawsuit filed under the NY Child Victims Act of repeatedly sexually abusing a child. The lawsuit states that the victim was a student at Our Lady of Hope in Buffalo, NY, where Fr. Kean served. The victim claims Fr. Kean engaged in unpermitted sexual contact that occurred in 1973 when ten years old. No further details have been released.
