Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Roberto Bravo:
Fr. Roberto Bravo was a priest of the Dominican order. According to media reports, in 1999, he was investigated following complaints that he had inappropriately touched six teenage girls. He was moved to Salt Lake City, where he continued to have “problems” with teenage girls.
Bravo was ultimately sent to live with six other admitted Dominican sex offenders at a seminary in Oakland, California.
