Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father Nelson Damasco:
Father Nelson Damasco was ordained a priest of the Nueva Segovia diocese in the Philippines before he served in the Diocese of San Diego for two years before he returned to his home diocese. According to media reports, in March 2007, his name appeared on the Diocese of San Diego list of clergy credibly accused of child sexual abuse. The list released the names of 38 priests who have been accused of sexual abuse, following up on a pledge that it made when it filed for bankruptcy protection in February 2007.
No specific information can be found about the allegations against him or the number of credible victims that have been found. Father Damasco died in 1988.
