Southeast Texas Man Says Two Catholic Priests Molested Him

Beaumont Enterprise
October 4, 2010

A Southeast Texas man filed a lawsuit Monday morning accusing two Catholic priests of sexual abuse in separate incidents.

He alleges a priest molested him at the church when he was 9 years old. The second incident occurred on a youth mission to Europe in 1989, when he was in high school, according to the petition filed by his lawyer this morning in the Jefferson County District Clerk’s Office.

The lawsuit names the Beaumont diocese of the Catholic Church, officials of which hushed the matter up when the man tried to report it, he says in the petition.
