A former teacher at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School in Kamloops during the 70s, alleges a Reverend sexually assaulted her.

She’s filed a notice of civil claim in B.C. Supreme Court against the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Kamloops and the retired priest.

She claims Father Erlindo Molon exploited her and repeatedly performed sexual acts – including intercourse – over a period of approximately eight months.

According to the document, Molon was about 20-years her senior.

The claim says the complainant disclosed the incidents to the Bishop of the Diocese at the time – who allegedly failed to take responsible steps to stop future incidents.
