Former Harrisburg Bishop Cleared Of Misconduct Allegation

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – Former Harrisburg Bishop Kevin Rhoades has been cleared of misconduct involving a former jail inmate he counseled while serving here in the 1990s. Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo said Rhoades never engaged in a criminal or otherwise improper relationship with the man. He added that “what turned out to be an unfounded report did unnecessary harm.” Rhodes, who is now Bishop of the Fort Wayne-South Bend, Indiana diocese, says the findings show why the credibility of accusations needs to be determined before someone’s reputation is impugned. A grand jury report last month found about 300 priests had abused children at six Pennsylvania dioceses since the late 1940s.
