Minnesota priest, 96, gave sharp, unemotional answers on Guam child abuses

Former Guam priest Louis Brouillard did not show much emotion and remained fairly sharp mentally when he provided, over a four-day period, information about the "tragic circumstances that allowed him to have access to Guam's children for many years," according to one of the attorneys involved in more than 140 lawsuits accusing Brouillard of child sex abuse.

Brouillard's Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 deposition in Pine City, Minnesota, where he lives, brought together attorneys for most plaintiffs and defendants from different parts of the nation.


The Diocese of Duluth had confirmed that Brouillard was sent from Guam to Minnesota for "help with his personal problems" in 1981 and later barred from serving as a priest after questions arose about a young house guest from the island.

Three recent lawsuits accused Brouillard of separately bringing Guam boys to Minnesota in the '80s and continuing to sexually abuse them there.
