Supervisor Testifying in the Pre-Trial Hearing of a Pries
United Press International
October 7, 1987
A dormitory supervisor testifying in the pre-trial hearing of a priest charged with sexually molesting two St. Catherine's Indian School students said he witnessed one molestation.
Terry Brennan, placed on administrative leave in December, testified Tuesday he once saw The Rev. Dennis Fountain manipulate a boy's penis for about five minutes.
Brennan said he spoke to a psychologist at the Santa Fe Indian Hospital the next day and initiated his own private investigation.
The two students allegedly molested testified in court Tuesday they lied to authorities about Fountain out of fear and a desire to put the incidents behind them.
They said they continued to go to the priest's apartment in the dormitory after the incidents to read the newspaper, retrieve money from their accounts and watch television.
An earlier indictment of Fountain was dismissed because of prosecutor involvement with the grand jury. The priest was dismissed from the school after the accusations first arose almost a year ago.
The ongoing hearing will determine if there is sufficient evidence to attempt to try Fountain a second time.
