Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father Ignatius Tuoc:

In 2003, Father Ignatius Tuoc was temporarily removed after the Diocese of St. Petersburg received a complaint from a female parishioner of Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church, claiming the priest sexually abused her. The woman claims the abuse started in the 1990s, when she was 13 years old, and continued until she was 26.

Tuoc was allowed to continue at Epiphany after the review board could not find enough evidence to corroborate the victim’s story.
