Details are expected this morning in a lawsuit launched by a Dunnville man against former Cayuga Roman Catholic priest Donald Grecco who has already been convicted of assaulting teenaged boys. Michael Blum claims he was abused by the priest in the late 1970s and is holding a media conference in St Catherines this morning to announce further details on the suit. The suit also names the Roman Catholic Diocese of St Catharines and former bishop Reverend James Wingle for what Blum calls Wingle's lack of action after hearing about the abuse allegations . 70 year old Grecco is to be sentenced later this month after he pled guilty in April to sexually molesting two other boys in the 1970s and 1980s.
