Shreveport Man Accusing Priest of Sexual Abuse in $12 Million Lawsuit

November 10, 2010

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) A federal lawsuit claims a former Shreveport priest abused a little boy more than two decades ago.

The victim, who is now 40 years-old and living in Tennessee, claims it happened at St. John Berchman's Parish.

According to the alleged victim's attorney, Jesuit Priest Donald Dickerson raped, molested and sexually abused the boy back in 1982.

He is now seeking $12 million in damages.

The Texas attorney is also representing a New Orleans man who says he too was molested by Dickerson.

We tried to reach St. John Berchman's for a comment, but we have not heard from them.

We also unsuccessfully tried to reach Dickerson at his last known address in Lincoln, Nebraska.
