Guam – A man who was molested by not one but two priests when he was a boy is the latest to file a sex abuse complaint against the Archdiocese of Agana.

Identified by the initials J.C.G., the victim says he was repeatedly sexually abused by the deceased former Guam priest Father Louis Brouillard. J.C.G. says it happened between 1970 to 1973 when he attended regular mass at the St. Francis Catholic Church in Yona.

The victim was not an altar boy or a member of the boy scouts like the scores of other victims who have named Brouillard in their lawsuits, but he did help with church services.

J.C.G. says that Brouillard would offer the boy rides home but instead of taking him home, the priest would bring him to other locations and molest him. The complaint states that Brouillard would then give the victim money to spend on drinks and candy.

Like many of the other victims, J.C.G. says he was also sexually assaulted on numerous occasions during swimming outings with the Boy Scouts.

Apart from the sexual abuse inflicted by Brouillard, J.C.G. says he was also molested by the late Father Antonio C. Cruz. According to the victim, the incident happened between 1972 and 1973 during a car ride home.

Cruz brought the boy to a secluded jungle area where he allegedly sexually assaulted the victim and attempted to sodomize him. J.C.G. says he was able to escape from Cruz and run home.

The victim is seeking $10 million dollars in damages.
