Rev. W. James Nyhan
The Reverend W. James Nyhan had a nearly unblemished record for 20 years.He started at St. Angela's Parish in Mattapan.He then moved to St. Ambrose in Dorchester and in 1975, was appointed the Juvenile Court chaplain in Dorchester District Court.In 1979, Nyhan's request for a year's leave of absence to serve in Charleston, S.C. diocese was approved.There, his first allegation was made, although the alleged victim did not charge him until 1994.In a handwritten note to the Charleston dicocese, the victim stated he was molested during "horseplay," but later admitted to overstating the allegations.
In the 1990s, Nyhan had several North Shore appointments, including one as Matignon High School's chaplain.In April, 2002, a man wrote to the Boston archdiocese that Nyhan made passes but no sexual attempts on him in 1985.In June, 2002, the chancery received another complaint from a man who claimed he was molested by Nyhan on several outings, including one to Fenway Park, between 1975 and 1977, when Nyhan was at St. Abrose.

Last year, Nyhan, 61, pleaded guilty to three counts of committing a lewd act on a minor while stationed at a South Carolina church from 1979 to 1980.He received a suspended sentence and was placed on probation.
He was placed on leave in 2002, when he was pastor of a Billerica church, after a Quincy man alleged Nyhan molested him in the 1970s at a Dorchester church.
Nyhan served at Bishop Fenwick from 1983 to 1994 and lived for some of those years at the rectory at St. Mary's Italian Church in Salem.He was a popular figure at Fenwick, and the school established a scholarship in his honor after he left.
