Print More

A former altar boy suing the Vermont Catholic church says he blames himself for the molestation he claims to have suffered as an 11-year-old.

The 43-year-old man, who now lives in Hyattsville, Maryland, says news of similar cases in Boston made him realize what happened to those victims happened to him.

He says the Rev. Edward Paquette groped him and now he’s suing for damages, saying it knew Paquette was a child molester when it hired him.

It’s the third trial this year in which former altar boys have alleged abuse by Paquette.
