Priest sues; was accused of abuse, but charges dropped

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis priest who was accused of sexually abusing a boy, only to have those charges dropped earlier this month, is now suing the boy’s parents, police and a victim’s rights group.

The Reverend Xiu Hui “Joseph” Jiang filed suit Thursday in U.S. District Court, seeking unspecified damages, claiming he was unfairly targeted and his reputation damaged. The suit names the boy’s parents by their initials, two police officers, the city of St. Louis, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, and SNAP leaders David Clohessy and Barbara Dorris.

Jiang was accused in two felony counts of abusing a boy under the age of 14. Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce dismissed the charges June 16 but said her office “remains hopeful that charges will be refiled in the future.”
