Man claims priest abused him at White Earth

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minnesota man who claims he was abused by a priest on the White Earth Indian Reservation is suing the Diocese of Crookston and the priest's religious order.

The man is identified in the lawsuit as Doe 19. He claims he was 8 or 9 years old when a priest at St. Anne's in Naytahwaush sexually abused him in 1984. The priest wasn't criminally charged. He died in 2009.

The lawsuit says the priest was accused of molesting three children before going to St. Anne's. It says the Crookston Diocese and the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, United States Province religious order should've known he was dangerous.

The Crookston Diocese says it's appalled and was unaware of any allegations against this priest.
