Summary of Abuse Allegations against Monsignor Alfred Hernandez:
Monsignor Alfred Hernandez was ordained a priest in 1955, who served in multiple parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. He spent his career working at various juvenile detention facilities, hospitals, and churches. According to media reports, in October 2014, he was named in a civil lawsuit accusing him of repeatedly sexually abusing a 6-year-old boy who was first grader at St. Ignatius in Los Angeles in 1993. Monsignor Hernandez was pastor at the time, having been there for 18 years when he retired in 1996.
