Lawsuit Filed Accusing 2 Priests Of Molestation
A now 37-year-old man has filed a lawsuit in Jackson County against the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, alleging he was molested by two priests in the 1980s.
The two priests named in the lawsuit are Rev. Mark Honhart and the Rev. Hugh Monohan.
“It happened, (the man was) 9 years old for the first priest, and for Father Hugh Monohan, he was 11 years old. So, it happened for a period of two or three years,” said David Biersmith, one of three men with the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests who showed up outside the diocese to show support for the unnamed plaintiff.
Richard Durocher was another man who showed up in support.
