Father Adrian Cristobal retains local counsel

Posted: Aug 08, 2018 3:27 PM Updated:

A priest on the run appears to have retained local legal counsel. Brooks Concepcion Law, P.C. entered its appearance as counsel of record for Father Adrian Cristobal.

The filing was signed by Attorney Georgette Bello Concepcion.

As reported, three former Barrigada altar boys allege Father Adrian sexually molested them.

One of the victims - identified only by his initials as J.C.C. - alleges the abuse spanned over a 15-year period and only came to an end in 2013.

Father Adrian was ordered to return back to Guam, but was a no-show.

The Archdiocese of Agana, as a result, imposed sanctions on the priest to include no wearing of the clerical garb, no celebrating mass, and no hearing confession.

Majority of the 180-clergy sexual abuse lawsuits are expected to head to settlement.

A status hearing is set for August 14th.
