In 1972, the Marianists gave Fr. Havel permission to study medicine at Georgetown University. At some point between 1980 and 2018, Fr. Havel was laicized. As of July 2002, he was believed to be practicing psychiatry in northern California. In 2002, a woman reported to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles that she had been sexually abused by Fr.

Havel may still be practicing psychiatry and may be living in Mountain View, CA. Whether he has access to children is unknown.
