Stearns Co. lawsuit claims St. John's Abbey knew of past abuse

Email

A former student sued St. John's Abbey for fraud on Thursday, alleging the religious order knew one of its members had been accused of sexual abuse as early as 1958, yet let him continue teaching.

The lawsuit was filed in Stearns County by a former St. John's Prep student who claims he was sexually abused by the Rev. Allen Tarlton in the 1980s.

Tarlton was an English teacher at the Minnesota school.
