Former teacher suing diocese of Catholic church over abuse claims

A former elementary school teacher is suing a diocese of the Roman Catholic church, alleging she was sexually assaulted by a priest while working at a church-run school four decades ago in Kamloops.
The woman alleges in a notice of civil claim filed in BC Supreme Court that Reverend Erlindo Molon exploited and sexually assaulted her several times over several months beginning in September 1976.

The documents say the woman reported the abuse to the diocese of Kamloops, but she alleges the assaults continued and escalated in aggression until Molon was transferred to Ontario.

None of the allegations have been proven in court. 

The diocese declined to comment on the case and efforts to reach Molon were unsuccessful.
