Catholic Priest

Pedro Vasquez


Pedro Vasquez is one of several religious assigned to Santa Barbara who were named as abusers in civil suit filed in 2008 that alleged that the Franciscans 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 abuse that Vasquez is accused of took place in the 2000s.
