Deceased local priests on 'accused' list

Two deceased former Hill Country priests are among 22 individuals whose names appeared on a list released Thursday, Jan. 31, by the Diocese of Austin of clergy who have been “credibly accused of committing sexual abuse against a minor.”

Paul M. Clogan, who died in 2012 at age 81, and Daniel Joseph Delaney, who died in 2008 at age 62, were named on the list by the Most Rev. Joe S. Vasquez, bishop of the Diocese of Austin.

Vasquez cautioned the list did not establish that an allegation had been substantiated or proven against each person listed — or that any abuse had occurred within the Diocese of Austin — but that after all information had been reviewed by an independent team, there remained reason to believe the allegation was true.
