Victim complained of stomach pain but says priest molested him instead


A.J.B.W. was around 14 or 15 years old when he says he was sexually abused.

Guam – The late Father Andrew Mannetta is once again named in a church sex abuse complaint filed against the Archdiocese of Agana.

The complaint was filed by 46-year-old A.J.B.W. who says Father Mannetta sexually abused him when he was around 14 or 15 years old.

It happened at the Talofofo church rectory where A.J.B.W. says Father Mannetta molested him after he complained of a stomachache. The victim says he was able to push away the priest’s hand and run away.

A.J.B.W. says he avoided going to church for a while until a new priest took over.

The victim is represented by Attorney David Lujan and he is seeking $5 million in damages.
