A lawsuit has been filed by a former altar boy against the Archdiocese of Chicago alleging that between 1983 and 1984, a priest sexually abused him on multiple occasions.

The plaintiff, now 40, alleges that a priest who was ordained in 1935, began to sexually abuse him in December 1983, when he ordered him into the rectory for punishment for mistakes he made while serving as an altar boy. According to the lawsuit, the boy was given a writing assignment, however, while in the rectory, the priest coerced him into pulling down his pants. The plaintiff alleges the priest then hit him with a wooden paddle and touched his genitals, all the while telling the boys that his actions would cleanse the boys of his mistakes.

The lawsuit claims the priest sexually abused the boy in this manner on at least four more occasions.
