Rochester – As the Child Victims Act floodgates open, one complaint filed in state Supreme Court this week raises a red flag, because it alleges that the accused is currently employed with an entity of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester.

The alleged victim coming forward in this case is represented by attorney Dan Ellis.

“Really, victims just want to be heard,” said Ellis, from Herman Law Firm.

The complaint accuses Dan Charcholla of violently sexually abusing a child repeatedly between 1981 and 1983. The complaint also states that Charcholla is the current director of recreation at DePaul Adult Care.
