Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations:

In February, 2023, Horowitz Law filed a lawsuit against the Diocese of Portland (Maine) on behalf of John SB Doe, who alleges he was sexually abused by Fr. Angelo LeVasseur in approximately 1991 or 1992.  The abuse is alleged to have taken place during an overnight trip to Quebec province.  At the time, LeVasseur was John Doe’s parish priest at St. Luce parish in Frenchville, Maine.  LeVasseur also operated the Christian Life Center, a retreat center for the parish’s teenagers.

The allegation was first reported to the Diocese of Portland in 2017.

LeVasseur died in 2009.  The lawsuit is now pending in Cumberland County, Maine.
