Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father Edward Mooney:
Fr. Edward Mooney became an ordained priest in 1949 and worked in various parishes in the Diocese of Little Rock, Arkansas. In September 2018, Mooney was publicly named and included on the Diocese of Little Rock’s list of accused clergy for whom unsubstantiated though credible allegations of sexual abuse of a minor have been received. It notes two known abuse victims. The diocese noted that the reports may be “unsubstantiated” because the accused was deceased at the time that the allegation was made or because there is not enough information on file to substantiate the allegation—but, nonetheless, the diocese considers the allegations to be credible and is offering or has offered assistance to known victims.
Information about the age/gender of his alleged victim/victims, the nature of the alleged sexual abuse, Mooney’s assignments at the time of the alleged abuse, or when the abuse took place is unknown.
Fr. Mooney was laicized in 1974 and died in 2009.
