Nationally known predator was just defrocked last year and abused one kid just 4 years ago
Late Friday, a new child sex abuse and cover up lawsuit was filed against McGuire and his supervisors. It charges that McGuire repeatedly assaulted a boy for ten years (1988-98) at a Jesuit residence in Evanston, several locations in California and on retreats across the country. McGuire befriended the boy's mom even before he was born, and helped the family during the boy's frequent childhood illness. He exposed the child to "explicit pornography, masturbated in front of the (boy), and forced him to massage McGuire's genital area."
In Feb. 2006, McGuire was found guilty of molesting two other boys in Wisconsin and at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, where they were students and where McGuire taught from 1965-70. Last March, prosecutors in Phoenix AZ filed more criminal charges against McGuire for molesting two other boys there between 1998 and 2002.
According to church records, until 2003, McGuire lived with and molested a different teenager in Evanston. The abuse stopped when another youngster filed the first civil molestation lawsuit against the McGuire. At least seven civil molestation suits have been filed against McGuire.
McGuire, an Oak Park native now in his 70s, was finally defrocked last year, even though his Jesuit supervisors received repeated reports of his crimes as far back as the 1960s.
Other Chicago-area Jesuit predator priests include Fr. John Powell, Fr. Bernard Knoth, Fr. William J. Spine, and Fr. Wilton Skiffington. SNAP is leafletting at Holy Family because it was run by Jesuits for more than 100 years (until the 1990s). Next door is a long-time Jesuit school, St. Ignatius College Prep.
The victim, now around 30 years old, lives in California. He is represented by attorneys Jeff Anderson (612) 817 8665, and Marc Pearlman (773) 368 0142.
