Tarlton’s Perp?

Shortly after this episode, he left for graduate studies at the University of
Louvain, and was away from the abbey for some seven years doing
doctoral and post-doctoral work.

Father Allen Tarlton‘s Autobiography:

He invited me for a walk one Saturday afternoon into the woods. (Saint
John’s is surrounded by 2400 acres, mostly woods and lakes. As we
walked he would periodically swat me on my thigh on butt, saying that
he was killing mosquitoes and horse flies. When we had gone a good
distance into the woods, we were lying on the ground, relaxing and
talking. Gradually, I closed my eyes and dozed off. I suddenly felt
him pulling down my zipper; I pretended to be sleeping. He masturbated
me to orgasm. As soon as I climaxed, I was filled with disgust, hating
both myself and the other monk. On the way back to the monastery, I
didn’t say a word to him. During vespers later in the afternoon, I
became so agitated in choir, that I had to leave the church. Shortly
after this episode, he left for graduate studies at the University of
Louvain, and was away from the abbey for some seven years doing
doctoral and post-doctoral work.
