Fort Wayne-South Bend Bishop Facing Misconduct Allegations

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — A new set of allegations for the Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend. 

Bishop Kevin Rhoades, who has already been thrown into the center of sexual abuse allegations by priests under his watch while he was the Bishop of Harrisburg, Penn., now finds himself accused of misconduct.

According to, the allegation against Rhoades is “possibly one of a sexual nature” involving a prison inmate. Rhoades, who has not been charged with anything, is adamantly denying the allegations. 

Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo is investigating the allegation against Rhoades.

Rhoades was listed in a grand jury report last month that detailed sexual abuse allegations against 300 priests within several diocese in Pennsylvania, two of which were brought to Rhoades attention while he was the Bishop of Harrisburg from 2004 to 2009.
