More Alleged Priest Sex Abuse Victims Take the Stand

[Source] Aug 22, 2008:

Dramatic testimony Thursday from four men who say they were molested as young boys by Father Edward Paquette.

 “He would constantly grab me in what he called wrestling where he would pick me up with one hand on my genitals and one hand on my back asking me how old i was,” said a former alter boy.

4 men who served as altar boys at Christ the King Church in Burlington in the late 1970’s took the stand Thursday.

Each one, who asked we not reveal their identities, described in detail how they say they were sexually abused by Father Edward Paquette.

There were times after mass where he would grab me touch me in places that weren’t right for him to touch me,” said one of the former alter boys.

The latest case against the Catholic Diocese of Burlington involves another former altar boy who also didn’t want us to use his name or show his face.

He says when the Diocese received complaints about the priest, they simply moved him, instead of protecting him from Father Paquette.

The other alleged victims were brought in to support his claim.  Each one told the jury the abuse was constant.

I couldn’t recall how many times but it was every time i saw him,” said one of the former alter boys.

Prosecutors expect the case to go to the jury by Monday
