Priest Guilty of Abuse Is Sued By 2nd TeenApr 20, 2004 | The St. Louis Post-Dispatch A Catholic priest who was convicted in November of sexually abusing a boy in 1995 was accused in a civil suit Tuesday of abusing a second teenager four years ago.
The Rev. Bryan Kuchar, 38, is serving three years in the St. Louis County Jail for sodomy upon a boy from south St. Louis County who was then 14. Kuchar was charged with that offense in April 2002, when he was associate director for vocations for the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
The new accusation alleges that Kuchar sexually abused another boy, then 16, in 2000 and 2001. The suit was filed in St. Louis Circuit Court on behalf of "John Doe SJ1," whose lawyer described him as 20 and living in the St. Louis area.
