St. Cloud News Conference Wednesday

Priest File of Fr. Othmar Hohmann, OSB to be Publicly Released Tomorrow

Lawsuit filed on behalf of sexual abuse survivor Doe 115

What: At a news conference on Wednesday in St. Cloud, attorney Mike Bryant of Bradshaw & Bryant, co-counsel with Jeff Anderson & Associates, will:

* Release the priest file of Father Othmar Hohmann, OSB, who worked in several Minnesota dioceses including the Diocese of St. Cloud, Diocese of Duluth and Diocese of Crookston. Additionally, Hohmann worked in North Dakota, Utah, Wisconsin and the Bahamas and has been accused of abusing several children.

* Announce the filing of a sexual abuse lawsuit filed in Stearns County on behalf of sexual abuse survivor Doe 115 naming the Diocese of St. Cloud, St. John’s Abbey and St. Joseph Parish in St. Joseph, MN as defendants. The young girl, now an adult, was sexually abused by Hohmann for several years.

* Request that all dioceses in Minnesota release the files of credibly accused clergy like St. John’s Abbey has done. St. John’s released the files of several credibly accused clergy as part of a settlement in the Doe 2 case in 2015.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at 11:00AM CDT

WHERE: Bradshaw & Bryant, PLLC

1505 Division Street

Waite Park, MN 56387


* Documents from Hohmann’s file and the complaint will be available at the press conference and on our website tomorrow at www.andersonadvocates.com
