Mayer was charged with luring a minor to have sex, and he pleaded not guilty. Fr. Mayer has been on inactive leave from the priesthood since 2000 due to his failure to adhere to Archdiocesan policies concerning interacting with youth and young adults.

He has been barred from any district facility or school campus. Fr. Mayer is listed on the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ 2018 List of Archdiocesan Clergy Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor.
