The Advocate

A Jesuit priest who founded a Catholic service group resembling the Peace Corps before facing complaints of inappropriate conduct at Boston College and Loyola University is now accused of raping a subordinate on a volunteer mission.

Tim Ballard’s allegations against the Rev. Ted Dziak triggered Dziak’s removal last fall as chaplain at Le Moyne College in upstate New York, where he had landed after leaving Loyola only weeks earlier. It’s unclear whether Dziak faces other consequences.

It's unclear if any prosecutor would take up Ballard’s accusations, not only because they involve events that occurred nearly 20 years ago, but also because the accuser was an adult at the time and didn’t file a contemporaneous report. Statutes of limitation also make it difficult for him to pursue a civil lawsuit.
