A former Guam resident who now lives in North Carolina has filed a lawsuit alleging he and other Boy Scouts were paid to swim naked and be sexually abused by a priest in the mid-1970s.
B.G., 58, who used his initials to protect his identity, filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Guam against the Archdiocese of Agana, the Boy Scouts of America and retired priest, Louis Brouillard.
The complaint states that B.G. joined the Agana Boy Scouts troop when he was 14 and participated in various Boy Scout activities when Brouillard served as a scoutmaster and was also a priest for the Agana Archdiocese.
Brouillard allegedly swam completely naked and routinely instructed B.G. and the other boys to remove their clothes as the priest would grope and touch their private parts while they were swimming, the lawsuit states.
B.G. alleges Brouillard would reward the boys by giving them $1 every time they swam naked.
The complaint also alleges the priest digitally penetrated the boy.
B.G.’s attorney David Lujan said his client was no longer able to handle the pain, humiliation and embarrassment that Brouillard inflicted upon him, so B.G. quit the Boy Scouts.
Brouillard was interviewed in a deposition last month in his home town of Pine City, Minnesota in relation to the dozens of child sex abuse lawsuits filed against him. He has admitted to many instances of sexual abuse while he served as a priest and scout master for the Boy Scouts during his 40 years on Guam.
