The Archdiocese of Agana has released a video of Deacon Francisco Tenorio defending Archbishop Anthony Apuron and condemning what he says are false accusations of sexual abuse. Earlier this week former Guam resident 52-year-old Roy Quintanilla alleged that he was sexually molested by the Archbishop when he was 12 years old.
Quintanilla says the alleged incident occurred when the Archbishop was a priest in Agat and he was an alter server at the time. The Archbishop denied the allegations.
Deacon Tenorio in his video said the Archbishop is deeply hurt by the accusations.
