Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father James Flemming:

Fr. James Flemming was ordained in 1986.

In 2004, a man filed suit alleging that he was abused by James Flemming and his brother, Rev. Neil Flemming, beginning in 1969 when he was 14 years old at Boystown, an orphanage in Miami.

At the time of the alleged abuse, James Flemming was not yet a priest. The suit alleges that both men used him as their “personal sex servant”. James Flemming was a tutor at the school at the time of the alleged abuse. The plaintiff stated that the alleged abuse began when he was summoned from Boystown to Neil Flemming’s quarters in a church rectory.

Very little is known of Flemming’s activities within the church as the Archdiocese of Miami has not released information about Flemming’s assignment history. Flemming’s current whereabouts are unknown.
