Former orphans suing Catholic charity for molestation
Kentucky Standard |
"Six women and one man filed suit Thursday against the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth for alleged sex abuse they said occurred during the 1950s at St. Thomas-St. Vincent Orphanage in Anchorage, Ky... the seven plaintiffs name two sisters, Mary Ann Powers, SCN, and Alma Stuecker, SCN, and one priest, the Rev. Herman J. Lammers - all now deceased - as the alleged abusers... Helen Martine Edwards, now 61, claims Lammers forcibly sexually molested, abused, battered and assaulted her, resulting in pregnancy at the orphanage. Her sisters, Myrtle Darlene Kustes, now 55, and Carol Ann Gilbert, now 52, and Alicia Lynn Sinnott, now 52, similarly claim Lammers raped and molested them too... David V. Summers, 58, claims Stuecker forcibly sexually abused him, at times using a Crucifix in sexual acts."
