In another sexual abuse lawsuit brought against a Catholic diocese in Connecticut, the plaintiff alleges he was raped by a former priest at his sister’s wedding in 1992 when he was nine years old. The lawsuit claims the church knew that the defendant, now-deceased Kiernan Ahern of the Diocese of Bridgeport, was a threat to children but did not promptly remove from him the ministry. According to Connecticut law, sexual abuse survivors have 30 years after they turn 18 to report sexual assault they experienced as a child.
