Former Biloxi priest accused of sex abuse scandal
A former Biloxi Jesuit priest, who served as the first principal at what was Mercy Cross High School, has been credibly identified as a priest who abused minors.
The late Francis Landwermeyer is one of 42 priests and other religious leaders on the list. Landwermeyer is among those listed with more than one credible allegation of abuse filed against him.
Landwermeyer is accused of abusing minors in the 60s and 70s, but not during the short year he spent as principal at Mercy Cross High School.
Landwermeyer criticized the church leadership in blogs he wrote before his death this past September.
