A Manhattan man has filed a $10 million suit against the Archdiocese of New York, charging its inaction allowed an allegedly deviate priest to sexually assault him.
The Rev. Albin Fusco reportedly had a record of "sexual deviation" before he allegedly assaulted the 22-year-old man at Most Precious Blood Church in Little Italy.
The man, whose name is being withheld, is now 25 and has had severe psychiatric problems as a result of the Aug. 2, 1999, attack, said his lawyer, Adam Cahn.
Cahn said the priest hugged the victim, then forced his head down into his lap and asked for oral sex.
The Rev. Patrick Boyle, of the Franciscan Province of the Immaculate Conception, said Fusco, 72, "was pulled out of the ministry as soon as the allegations were made."
He's now living in a monastery, Boyle said. Fusco could not be reached for comment.
Cahn said Fusco was arrested upstate in 1993 on a charge of soliciting an undercover cop in a park. The charge was later reduced.
