'Beach Grope' Rev Says 12-Year-Old Accuser Is Lying

The lawyer for a Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old boy on Father's Day suggested the child is lying, as a judge ordered the cleric held on $50,000 bond yesterday.

The Rev. Peter Kiare's lawyer, Michael Gaffey, questioned why the boy did not shout out if the 41-year-old Kenyan missionary actually molested him during a June 16 outing to Rockaway Beach.

"A 12-year-old should be able to shout," said Gaffey, during a Queens Criminal Court hearing. "There's nobody to back up these allegations."

Prosecutor Kenneth Appelbaum said Kiare molested the boy at the beach, in a grocery store, at a restaurant, at a bus stop and on a bus.
