4 years after exoneration, accused priest fights for reinstatement

May 07, 2010

Four years after his exoneration by a grand jury, Father James Selvaraj, a priest accused of abuse, is seeking to be reinistated to public ministry in the Diocese of Trenton.

“Because of his overly friendly personality he has been warned on several occasions to be cautious concerning outward signs of friendship and affection toward young people,” Bishop John said in a letter to the priest’s canon lawyer. “Our contemporary national culture and particularly the present Church situation demands such caution. Father James does not seem to fully understand these cautions and their implications.”
