A New Mexico man has filed suit against the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, alleging a priest sexually molested him in the 1980s. In the suit, the plaintiff says he was abused when he was 10 years old by the defendant while training to be an altar boy at St. Anthony Parish. The suit says the parish and archdiocese should have been aware of the dangers the priest posed to children and should have done more to protect the plaintiff.
