A 43-year-old woman has sued the Stockton Diocese, claiming that former priest Oliver O'Grady sexually abused her several times while she attended St. Anne's School in the 1970s, according to the diocese and two attorneys.

The woman, whose name was not disclosed, says that while she was punished at school, O'Grady sought her out in the guise of soothing her, according to the plaintiff's attorney, Devin Storey, from the San Diego law firm of Zalkin and Zimmer.

    Mrs. S.: We may have been in the same CCD class. Yes, O'Grady was creepy indeed.

    I'm starting to think there will be more priests burning in hell than lawyers.

    Mrs. S. Thanks for being counted. Should note that Diocese doesn't count your brother out loud. His data point -- settlement 10 years ago -- falls outside of the incidents they've reported in their audit. Farrow and others should take note of this. When you interview Church heads, don't just let them use you as a vehicle for their lies. Do investigative reporting and call them out on this. They are not holy people. They are proven liars.

    My brother was a victim. He received a settlement over ten years ago. My siblings and I grew up in St. Anne's parish. I remember standing up in CCD whenever O'Grady would enter the room. He always gave me the creeps, and he was always hugging children. When he hugged me, I got chills. Fortunately, I was not one of his victims.
