Three Sue Over Alleged Molestation By Former Concord PriestJan 17, 2003 | AP
Three men who allege they were molested as children by a former Concord priest are suing in Alameda County Superior Court.
Attorney Richard Simons represents the unnamed plaintiffs.
He says the suit names the late Reverend Arturo Riberio of All Saints Catholic Church in Concord and the Oakland and San Francisco dioceses.
Simons says the alleged abuse occurred in 1962 and 1963 when the plaintiffs were in their early teens.
The suit doesn't specify the amount of damages the plaintiffs want.
Simons and attorneys involved allege that diocese officials knew about sexual abuse by priests and responded by shuttling them from parish to parish.
