Archdiocese Reports Another Allegation Against PriestJan 20, 2005 | AP
Another sexual abuse allegation has surfaced against a priest already removed from the ministry for a previous allegation of sexual misconduct.
The Archdiocese of Baltimore says the latest allegation involves a high school student who claims to have been abused in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Jerome Toohey. The case has been reported to the Baltimore County State's Attorney's office.
The abuse allegedly occurred at Toohey's home.
Toohey is also known by the nickname "Jeff" and lost his duties as a priest in 1993 after the Archdiocese received an allegation that he'd sexually abused a young man in the 1980s, an allegation that Toohey denied.
Until that allegation surfaced, Toohey was a Chaplain to the Deaf Community and served on the board at the John Carroll School.
