Alleged teen rape by Lapeer County priest in 2010 covered up by Archdiocese of Detroit
Category: Catholic Sexual Abuse
A federal lawsuit has been filed by a Lapeer County man who alleges he was sexually assaulted by a Catholic priest when he was eight years old while attending Bishop Kelley Catholic School in Lapeer.
The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan by the victim, who is now 18 years old. The plaintiff is a former student at Bishop Kelley Catholic School and former member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Parish. He seeks to use a pseudonym in the case due to his status as a survivor of criminal sexual assault as a minor.
The lawsuit alleges Bishop Kelley Catholic School, Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Parish, the Archdiocese of Detroit and Archbishop Allen Vigneron, allowed the rape to occur by allowing a priest be in a position with access to young children, including the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, while a student at Bishop Kelley school in or around October of 2010, the plaintiff attended a one-on-one counseling session with a priest named Aloysius Volskis, also known to the children as “Father Al.”
The principal of the school escorted the plaintiff to meet with Volskis for a “spiritual formation” session, leaving the student alone in the teacher’s lounge with Volskis, who then raped him, the lawsuit alleges.
The child did not immediately report the assault because Volskis told him he had “power with the devil” and would have the plaintiff’s mother killed if he told anyone about the rape, the lawsuit states.
