"Each person that comes forward brings forth a little more of the truth, which serves to protect children in the future," said Joseph Saunders, a Pinellas Park attorney representing the man in the latest case, filed Tuesday in Hillsborough Circuit Court.
The man didn't speak about what happened to anyone until last year, when he saw a newspaper article about another sex abuse case at Mary Help. He contacted Saunders and told his story for the first time.
"I didn't have anyone to go to. I couldn't go to my family. I didn't have a father figure," he said. "I could not go to my mother because whatever the church said, or a brother or a priest said, that was it."
