• In 2003 a woman reported that Ingels sexually abused her over a four year period, beginning in 1973, when she was a freshman at Marin Catholic High. She had lost her parents in a car accident at age 7, and was having trouble with her adoptive family. Ingels stepped in to "help" her.

This was prior to Ingels' ordination.
In police tape recordings in 2003, Ingels apologized to the male victim saying, among other things, "What I did to you was terrible."
In 2003 the female accuser gave police a stack of "love letters" written to her by Ingels from 1974-1984. They were written on stationery from the various parishes to which he was assigned.

Ingels was removed from public ministry in July 2002 due to the accusation he abused a boy in 1972. He was allowed to continue work as a canon lawyer, and he was one of four chosen by the Canon Law Society of America to work on the Guide to the Implementation of the U.S. Bishops' Essential Norms for Diocesan/Eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons. It wasn't until charges were filed against Ingels that he was placed on leave, in May 2003.
The Marin County D.A. was preparing to file charges that Ingels sexually abused a high school girl in the 1970s when the Supreme Court overturned the 1994 law that extended the Statute of Limitations on sex crimes. As a result, neither case could be prosecuted .
Ingels was last known to be living in a mansion on the grounds of St. Patrick Seminary in Menlo Park with retired archbishop Quinn. Ingels was known in 2005 to be an advisor to Opus Bono Sacerodotii. Per its website, OBS "is a Catholic charity that in partnership with our benefactors, assist bishops, religious superiors, and Vatican officials in finding solutions for the proper care and treatment of priests who are experiencing difficulties. In the past nine years since our founding we have been contacted by thousands of priests and many bishops, including the Holy See."
