Man who alleged sexual abuse settles with priest

Man who alleged sexual abuse settles with priest
ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Staff reports | Posted: Friday, August 27, 2010 12:00 am
A man who claimed a repressed memory of alleged sexual abuse by a Vianney High School teacher has agreed to settle with the priest for $500,000.

Under the settlement terms filed with St. Louis County court earlier this month, Brother William Mueller, 71, of San Antonio, will pay Bryan Bacon damages for child sexual abuse and battery.

Bacon had already settled part of the suit with the Marianist Province of the United States, a St. Louis-based order that operated Vianney.

Bacon claimed that Mueller blindfolded, threatened and molested him in 1985, while the priest was an assistant principal and religion teacher.

The case was filed in 2005.
