Three former Secaucus priests were on a list released by the Newark archdiocese last week as having sexual assault allegations made against them.
Among the 186 names on the list were Father John C. Bouton, Father Alan Guglielmo and Father Robert Marotta.
Bouton was ordained in 1949 and is deceased. He had one allegation made against him and also served in churches in Caldwell, New Providence and Edgewater.
Gugliemo was ordained in 1968. He is still alive and was accused of molesting one child and subsequently permanently removed from the ministry. He also served in nearly a dozen other town parishes.
Marotta was ordained in 1963 and is also deceased. He had one allegation made against him and served at a number of other parishes in Hudson County, including Jersey City and West New York.
The list is result of New Jersey’s dioceses working with a task force from the Attorney General of New Jersey to address the past of clergy sexual abuse within the state.
