Fr. Florencia Peneda Tumang

Diocese: Diocese of Trenton


In 1993 civil suit, 4 girls allege that they were abused by Tumang, between 1987 & 1992. Parents of 1 victim told the Diocese in 1990; nothing done. This allowed Tumang to assault the 4th girl. Tumang was indicted twice in 1992 but fled (possibly to the Philippines). Arrest warrants still outstanding.
