|Rev. Richard H. Jeub
Summary of Case: Jeub was accused in 1992 of having engaged a 15-year-old girl in unwanted sexual activity in 1969. Jeub denied abusing the girl. Another woman accused Jeub of having sexually abused her when she was an adolescent, from 1967-1970. She turned down a settlement offer, and he was found in a civil trial not to have engaged in abusive behavior. Jeub was sent to St. Luke's Institute in Maryland in 1990 for evaluation and treatment. The archdiocese's Vicar General wrote in 1991 that Jeub had a history of exploitative sexual relations with adult women. A St. Luke's psychiatrist wrote that these women included a nun Jeub was counseling, a blind woman he was caring for, the wife of a patient in a hospital in which he was chaplain, among others. Jeub was taken out of full time parish ministry for a few years, eventually being allowed to return. He resigned from parish ministry in June 2002, after publicity about past accusations. Per the archdiocese, Jeub took early retirement.
