“Convicted Priest Faces Four New Sex Abuse Lawsuits” & “Lawsuits Launched Against Jailed Priest”

by CBC News

Father William Hodgson Marshall will face four more civil lawsuits.

Marshall was convicted in June 2011 for the sexual abuse of 17 young people while he served as a Roman Catholic priest and educator. His crimes spanned three decades, according to a press release issued by the victims’ lawyers, Ledroit Beckett.

Ledroit Beckett lawyer Robert Talach and victim Denis Beland announced the launching of four additional lawsuits against Father William Hodgson Marshall.

A victim of Marshall, along with his lawyer, came forward in a Sudbury press conference Wednesday to announce the additional lawsuits and to “promote awareness, reach out to others and ultimately seek justice.” Lawsuits have also been launched on behalf of individual and corporate defendants for sexual abuse perpetrated against four male victims.

Also named in the lawsuits are The Basilian Fathers of Toronto, the Sudbury Catholic District School Board, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie and Bishop Ronald Peter Fabro, all being either employers or supervisors of Marshall over the years.

Marshall faces fresh criminal charges in Saskatchewan for the abuse of two more victims there.
