Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father Jeremy Myers:
Fr. Jeremy Myers became an ordained priest for the Benedictine Order in 1984 within the Diocese of Little Rock in Arkansas. In 1996, he became a Dallas Diocesan priest and worked at various parishes in Texas.
In 2018, the diocese reported to the police an allegation they received that Myers abused a student in 1986 at Subiaco Catholic School in Arkansas when Myers was dean of the boy’s dorm. According to media reports, the boy was expelled the next year and sent home to Dallas. Myers continued to sexually abuse the boy at the clergy house where he worked in Dallas, TX. The headmaster at the boy’s new Catholic school was told of the ‘relationship’ between the priest and the boy, yet Myers denied it. According to media reports, Myer’s personnel file showed an allegation from a different victim and no others.
In 2019, the Dallas Police Department executed a search warrant at the Catholic Diocese of Dallas looking into allegations of sexual abuse against five priests, including Father Jeremy Myers of Sherman, who was assigned to St. Mary’s Parish in Sherman and St. Francis of Assisi in Whitesboro for 25 years. The search warrant stated all five priests had been charged with sexual assault of a child. The diocese told reporters that Myers was on administrative leave during the investigation.
In 2019, Myers was publicly named and included on the Diocese of Dallas list of credibly accused clergy for whom allegations of sexual abuse of a minor have been admitted, substantiated or determined, or considered to be credible.
Myers was removed in 2018. His current whereabouts are unknown.
