According to Abbot John Klassen in June of 2010, St. John’s Abbey settled a complaint against former St. John’s Prep School prefect Terry DeSutter in 2002. At the time of the misconduct, several “prefects” lived in the boy’s dormitory at the Prep School. Some prefects were also teachers.
According to one source, DeSutter confronted a student who came in past curfew. DeSutter reportedly told the student that he would not report the incident if the student performed oral sex on him. Abbot Klassen did not dispute these claims.
