A lawyer for a California man says his client has filed a lawsuit against a defrocked priest who admitted molesting dozens of children. Attorney Joseph George says the civil lawsuit filed Wednesday in San Joaquin County Superior Court accuses Oliver O'Grady of repeatedly sexually assaulting his client when he was 5.

George says the alleged acts took place at Turlock parish. The alleged victim, now 24-years-old, is not identified in the suit. The lawsuit is seeking unspecified compensation for what it terms "emotional scars."

O'Grady was deported to his native Ireland in 2000 after serving prison time on a 1994 conviction for molesting two brothers.

Stockton Diocese spokeswoman Barbara Thiella declined to comment on the lawsuit because the diocese has not seen the suit.

    As despicable and traumatic as these acts can be to a human being, I fail to see how money is going to help.
