Notes: Accused in 1994 suit of sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy daily during a 1971 car trip from NM to DC. Suit was settled in 12/95 by order and archdiocese; terms confidential. Archuleta does ‘not deny the fundamental allegations’ but says the plaintiff exaggerated. Archdiocese removed Archuleta from ministry, but he was found working as a priest in Mexico City in 2002.
