Forrest McDonald


Forrest McDonald was one of several religious assigned to Santa Barbara who were named as abusers in civil suit filed in 2008 which alleged that the Franciscan Order constituted “an ongoing public nuisance as a result of their practice of shuttling pedophile priests among communities without warning members of the public that a sexual predator might be in their midst.” The alleged abuse perpetrated by McDonald took place in 1960s-1970s.
