Allegations of Abuse and/or Misconduct
Fr. Allen Tarlton began victimizing students beginning in the late 50s. In the 1970's he had at least three victims, performing oral sex or fondling all of his victims. In the 1980's, Tarlton masturbated in front of at least one victim, had oral sex with another, and licked the anus of yet another.

In 1993, Abbot Jerome Theisen claimed that Fr. Otto Weber reported abuse by Fr. Allen Tarlton in 1979. Abbot Theisen sent Fr. Tarlton to St. Luke's Institute for therapy. Fr. Tarlton was allowed to resume teaching/prefect duties at the Prep School.
