Alleged Abuse: Accused following his death of sex abuse by eleven men
Where is he now: Deceased
In August 2018, an Iberia Parish man came to KATC to say he had been abused by Kenneth Morvant, a priest at St. Martin de Tours Church in St. Martinville. A suit was filed, and 11 men stated they were molested between 1971-1979.
Morvant is now deceased and buried at the church. The Diocese said an investigation was underway but they had no evidence to prove the allegations were true.
