96th lawsuit against Archdiocese of Agana (Guam) alleges rape

Guam – The Archdiocese of Agana and its agents, “priests,” are charged with the protecting children who are under their care and supervision but according to the latest lawsuit filed in District Court on Thursday, this was not the case.

The latest lawsuit was filed by A.C.J. who was about 10 or 11 years old when he alleges that now-defrocked priest Raymond Cepeda sexually molested and abused him. According to court documents, A.C.J. was an altar server at Santa Barbara Catholic Church in Dededo when Cepeda took him to the sacristy, began touching and rubbing his private area before raping him.

The complaint further states that the Archdiocese knew that Cepeda had sexually abused and molested A.C.J. and other minor children for years, alleging that the Archdiocese did nothing to prevent Cepeda from engaging in additional instances of sexual abuse.

This is now the 96th sex abuse lawsuit filed against the Archdiocese of Agana.

A.C.J. is seeking $5 million in damages.
