North Adams man says a priest molested him

Print | Email
A North Adams man is the latest person to talk about his alleged molestation by a catholic priest. 33-year-old Paul Babeu says he was molested by the Reverend Richard Lavigne years before the Diocese of Springfield removed the priest from his duties. The Reverend Lavigne reportedly served at St. Francis of Assisi in North Adams. Babeu said church officials were told that Lavigne molested him between the ages of 13 and 15 in the mid-1980's. Lavigne was arrested in 1991 and was eventually sentenced to a combination of probation and psychiatric evaluation and agreed not to serve as a priest again. Babeu is a former Berkshire County Commissioner and former North Adams City Councilor.
