3 to Testify in Priest Sex-Abuse Case

April 1, 1993

A probe into sex-abuse allegations against a retired Roman Catholic priest from Northern Kentucky has expanded into Mason County.

A county grand jury will hear testimony from three people April 14 on the Rev. Earl Bierman, 61, who was an associate pastor at St. Patrick's Church in Maysville from 1979 to 1980, said Mason County Commonwealth's Attorney Woodson Wood.

Although Wood would not identify the witnesses, Richard Strunck of London confirmed Tuesday that he would be one. In December, Strunck filed a lawsuit against Bierman, a local bishop, and two other priests in Kenton County. It contends Bierman sexually abused him from 1977 through 1982.

Bierman was charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy in December and is accused of molesting teen-age boys at the old Mount St. Martin's School in Newport, where he was a teacher in the 1970s. Bierman has pleaded innocent.

Bierman was being held yesterday in the Campbell County Detention Center on a $125,000 bond.
