Every time the former Catholic priest and Lake Worth resident Neil Doherty enters the news, it seems like more (alleged) victims come a’tumbling from the woodwork. Last week, Doherty was hauled off to the poky for a violation of the terms of his bail — he had left his house, which was a no-no, apparently to attend a funeral. This was not the first time his ankle monitor had reported him straying, and finally the police took notice.
With the (alleged) serial-abuser Doherty languishing in jail, another (alleged) victim filed suit against the ex-priest, telling a story similar to those of the many, many other boys Doherty has (allegedly) abused. In this case, the (alleged) victim was a 14-year-old runaway hanging out in a trailer park, whom Doherty first assisted, then befriended, and then (allegedly) plied with pot, booze, and cocaine. And then Doherty (allegedly) had sex with him.
