The young seminarian moved to Berkeley to pursue a masters degree and started a boys choir for local children. His first victim was a boy of about 7 and he molested his 5-year-old nephew.

4. His sexual fires are stoked and he is looking for ways to engage in sexual play with someone who is available and will not disclose. He turns to one of his choir boys and his nephew. Once again whatever he did with these two boys is probably similar to what occurred to him in the infirmary. It was not bad enough for these two young boys to disclose what he did. He probably made some kind of game out of it. How did the choir boy come to be left alone with this choir director where the molest could occur in the first place? Who would have thought your future priest brother would molest his nephew? At what age do you talk to your kids and tell them about good and bad touch and no one is to give them a bad touch? If they do get a bad touch, they must tell mom or dad.

 

He finished his work at Berkeley and was ordained a priest. He returned to the seminary where he was molested as a youngster. He hated his assignment and started another boys choir as a release. He preferred boys between 8 and 11. “The priest would fondle his singers under the guise of tickling games or back rubs during one-on-one choir rehearsals. He had boys play dart games that ended in sexually charged wrestling. He rubbed the genitals of high school seminary students in their dorms and photographed young boys in the shower on a choir trip to Europe.” The priest seemed oblivious to the damage he was doing until one of his most frequent victims resisted him for the first time at the age of 11, after about four years of molestation. “He started to cry and that snapped something in my head. For the first time, I was seeing signs that he really did not like this.”

 

5. Usually the victims in these types of cases do not resist and go along with what is occurring. They may take it as a game, an experimentation, or a chance for them to also do a daring act. Normally when a child says they do not like to do it anymore, it does stop. The offender is normally oblivious that they are damaging the victim from the start. Why are these boys not saying anything to their parents, siblings or friends? As parents we leave our kids in situations with other adults where these things could happen and we are not along to watch and supervise. A priest, a choir director, an uncle, a coach, a Boy Scout leader, a youth director, a family friend, a babysitter, or a mentor are all capable of engaging in inappropriate behavior with your child. You must be observant and communicate with your child. Be aware of any potential situation where they could be molested. The usual victim is someone who is available and is likely not to disclose.

In an attempt to reform, the priest dated three women. Two of the women had their children in his choir. The priest was shocked when he was assigned to investigate another priest accused of molesting two brothers who were also his victims. Eventually one of the choir boys did disclose. The priest was removed from the ministry and prosecuted.
