Former TNA Star Files Child Sex Abuse Lawsuit Against Priest

Church Officials Knew Cleric Was Abuser, Yet Allowed Him to Stay in Schools in Three States

Simon Diamond Vows to Help Keep Kids Safe

"The Time for Silence and Shame is Over," He Says

A former TNA Wresting Star filed a child sex abuse lawsuit today, accusing a teacher and priest at a prestigious Delaware high school of sexually abusing him when he was a young teen student at the school.

Pat Kenney, who wrestled under the name Simon Diamond, used a landmark Delaware Law, the Child Victims Act, to come forward and tell his story of childhood sexual abuse at Wilmington's Salesianum High School, where he says he was sexually molested by known predator Denis Killion.

Rev. Denis Killion was removed from ministry when four men came forward in August to accuse him of sexual abuse. Letters exposed in the cases showed that church officials knew that Killion was a molester, but instead of removing him, moved the priest to schools in Pennsylvania and Florida. Since then, a fifth victim has come forward.
