Church faces another allegation of clergy sex abuse

Posted: Updated:

While the Archdiocese of Agana prepares to file bankruptcy, yet another victim of clergy sexual abuse files suit against the Church. Only identified by his initials to protect his identity, former 54-year-old Asan resident M.C.A. alleges he was sexually molested and abused by Monsignor Jose Ada Leon Guerrero and Father Raymond Techaira.

According to the complaint filed in the Superior Court of Guam, M.C.A was an altar boy at the Asan Parish. He was only 8-years-old when he alleges Guerrero raped him and performed sexual acts on him on parish grounds.

The priest reportedly reminded the boy not to tell anybody since he "was a chosen child."

Though Guerrero was transferred to another parish, M.C.A. was sexually abused again by Techaira, also on parish grounds for a period of three years.

Both priests passed away in the 1970s.

M.C.A. is suing for $10 million.
