Parents of Suicide Victim Sue Catholic Church and Priest for Child Sex Abuse

Attorneys from Ken Chackes, LLC on May 2, 2013, filed a lawsuit on behalf of the parents of a young man who committed suicide at the age of 21 after being sexually abused by a priest several years earlier.  The suit alleges that the child was abused by Fr. Bryan Kuchar at a camp at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, designed for boys who were interested in learning more about the priesthood.  At that time Kuchar headed the archdiocesan “vocations office,” assigned with recruiting priests.  In 2003, Kuchar was found guilty of sexually assaulting another boy in 1995 at Assumption Catholic Church in south St. Louis County.
