65-year-old alleges prior sexual abuse by priest

Posted: Jul 11, 2018 2:15 PM Updated:

Another clergy sexual lawsuit is filed this week. 65-year-old J.V.C. alleges he was molested by Father Antonio Cruz as a teen boy.

Cruz, who passed away over thirty years ago, was a priest at Our Lady of Peace and Safe Journey Catholic Church in Chalan Pago at the time.

Only identified by his initials to protect his privacy, J.V.C. alleges Cruz asked him to bring him a coconut. When he returned, the priest was allegedly naked and masturbating and performed sexual acts on the teen boy.

J.V.C. is represented by attorney David Lujan.

He is suing for $5 million.
