Another former altar boy shares his story of sexual abuse.

53-year-old R.P. was an altar boy at Talofofo Parish when he alleges he was sexually molested by Father Louis Brouillard in the early 1970s.

Although he wasn't a boy scout, R.P. and his cousin were interested in joining so they attended a jamboree at Ipan Public Beach.

The boys shared a tent that night when they were approached by Brouillard who was a scoutmaster. Brouillard came into the tent and lied down with the boys before exposing his penis. Although the boys laughed, the priest then forced both R.P. and his cousin to touch and masturbate him.

R.P. is suing for $10 million in damages.

He marks the 80th victim to file suit.
