A third sexual abuse lawsuit's been filed against a former Diocese of Wilmington priest.

The suit filed Friday by alleged victim John Coe Number 1 accuses Father Eugene Clarahan of abusing him in 1968, when Clarahan was a prison chaplain and Coe was a 17-year-old inmate.

Coe, now 58, claims he's been addicted to alcohol and drugs and hasn't been able to hold down a job, sustain a marriage or even trust anyone since he was abused, and has suffered from depression and anxiety.
