Trial Begins Against Ex-Connecticut Priest Accused of Abuse

A criminal trial against a former Connecticut priest accused of abusing nearly 30 children starts Monday in New Mexico.

According to Bishop Accountability, Fr. Arthur Perrault worked in Hartford, East Hartford, Naugatuck and on the Yale campus in the 1960s.

It’s not too late for people with knowledge or suspicions about Fr. Perrault’s crimes to help law enforcement convict him. We hope that Fr. Perrault will be found guilty and kept away from kids for the rest of his life. And we hope anyone who may have been hurt by Fr. Perrault will come forward, make a report to law enforcement, and find help and healing from independent therapists and support groups.
