Convicted molester Earl Bierman had Covington Latin school students sleep overnight with him at his Fort Mitchell church quarters. The Covington Diocese has not denied the incidents occurred.
Retired Rev. Elmer Grosser testified that he saw at least 2 or 3 boys go with Bierman upstairs at the Blessed Sacrament church where Bierman was associate pastor in '72. Bierman said he had taken the boys to a basketball game and it was too late to take them home, so he let them stay the night, but Grosser didn't believe him. However, Grosser did not report the incidents, forbidding Bierman from taking any students to his suite.
Fort Thomas veterinarian John Secter is suing the diocese for an undisclosed amount claiming the diocese knew about Bierman's actions with boys as early as 1961 but did not do enough to protect future victims.
Bierman was convicted in '93 on criminal abuse charges and is serving a 20-year sentence at the Kentucky State Reformatory.
Secter claims Bierman rubbed his knees and thighs and once touched his genitals in incidents beginning in '72. Bierman also allegedly asked Secter to go to a meeting for gay priests with him. Bierman was suspended by then-Bishop Richard Ackerman.
