Ex-Priest, Minister Now Faces Fourth Suit

St. Louis Post-Dispatch
April 27, 2004

A fourth person claiming to be a victim of sexual abuse filed suit Monday in St. Louis Circuit Court against Robert J. Yim, a former Catholic priest and Protestant minister.

The plaintiff said he was a teenager whose family attended St. Paul Catholic Church in Fenton when he allegedly was molested by Yim from 1985 to 1987. The plaintiff is now in his 30s and lives in another state, according to the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.

SNAP demonstrated Monday in front of Barnes-Jewish Hospital to publicize Yim's alleged prior conduct. Yim was a chaplain at the hospital for several years.

Yim resigned as a priest in 1995 and later became a minister. He was removed from the ministry of the United Church of Christ last year.

Pending in St. Louis Circuit Court are two other suits against Yim involving three plaintiffs, who say they, too, were molested when they were minors and Yim was a priest.
