Former Capuchin brother Vernon Kamiaz allegedly sexually abused a boy in the Agana Heights Parish restroom after a choir practice and in a vehicle after a church service, around 1983, a lawsuit filed in federal court on Friday states.

The plaintiff, identified in court documents only as R.I.C. to protect his privacy, was about 14 years old when Kamiaz allegedly sexually molested and abused him.

At the time, Kamiaz was a Capuchin brother assigned to the Agana Heights Parish, and he supervised and chaperoned many of the youth choir events, the lawsuit states. Kamiaz was also R.I.C.’s religious education teacher.
