Four more sexual assault victims of convicted pedophile Rev. William Hodgson Marshall, who preyed on his victims over a 30-year period, have launched separate $3-million lawsuits against the Basilian priest.

The civil suits by Greg McCullough, David D’Agnillo, Thomas Haberer and an unamed plaintiff also name the Basilian Fathers of Toronto, Catholic Bishop Ronald Fabbro and the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board, alleging none did anything to prevent Marshall from abusing children.

Marshall, now 89, was sentenced June 9 in a Windsor court to two years in prison for molesting children. He pleaded guilty to 17 counts of indecent assault between 1952 and 1985 in Windsor, Sudbury and Toronto where the Basilian taught.
