Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Monsignor Charles Beausang:

Monsignor Charles Beausang was ordained a priest in 1946 and served in the Diocese of Camden. He served in multiple parishes throughout his career. According to a list maintained by Bishop Accountability.org, in 2021, he was named in a lawsuit alleging that he sexually abused a 9-year-old boy in approximately 1950.  At the time of the alleged abuse, Monsignor Beausang was assigned to Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It occurred inside Our Lady Star of the Sea School, where the boy was a student. Monsignor Beausang told the boy to expose the boy’s penis to him to masturbate in front of the boy. When the Monsignor began to unfasten the boy’s belt buckle, the boy ran away.

The case was settled in 2020.

Monsignor Beausang died in August 2000.
