Clergy sexual abuse case filed against Brother Vernon T. Kamiaz of Agana Heights Church

Posted: Updated:

Another case of clergy sexual abuse filed today. This time, against Brother Vernon T. Kamiaz of Agana Heights Church who, according to Simon Sanchez High School's website, is a science teacher at the Yigo campus.

The alleged incidents occurred in 1989 or 1990 when victim E.M. was about 15 or 16 years old and attending confirmation classes instructed by Brother Vernon.

According to the complaint, Brother Vernon insisted on talking about E.M. and his sexual relations with his girlfriend who wanted to wait until marriage to have sex.

E.M. alleges that during a car ride, Brother Vernon reached over and grabbed his private parts announcing "I'm trying to teach you what to do so you can have sex with her."

Though he managed to push Brother Vernon off of him, he would continue to press the teen boy on whether he tried the technique on his girlfriend.

E.M.'s filing comes just days after both the local and federal courts have ordered a stay on clergy sex abuse cases in light of possible settlement.

E.M. is represented by Attorney Anthony Perez.
