Faces Sex Abuse Lawsuit
July 8, 2002
Cook County - A member of a Roman Catholic religious order convicted of child pornography in 1999 has been accused of sexual abuse by a former student at St. Laurence High School in Burbank.
Robert Brouillette, a member of the Congregation of Christian Brothers, which runs the school, was a guidance counselor and religious mentor to the student between 1996-98, according to a civil lawsuit filed Friday in Cook County Circuit Court.
The suit alleges Brouillette and the former student, identified only as John Doe, had sexual contact repeatedly at the high school, in an attached residence and in Brouillette's bedroom until April 1998 when Brouillette was arrested in an unrelated sex sting operation that led to his conviction.
The lawsuit also alleges Brouillette had sex with minors at schools in Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan and a New Mexico reservation before he was transferred to St. Laurence.
Brouillette lives in a Missouri home for priests and brothers, where he is supposed to be supervised, said attorney Jeanine Stevens, who filed the lawsuit.
Brouillette, the Christian Brothers and St. Laurence could not be reached Sunday. An attorney for Brouillette declined to comment.
