JEFFERSON — A man has
testified he was sexually assaulted dozens of times by a
Fort Atkinson priest when he was a young boy.
That priest, William Nolan,
is on trial in Jefferson County for six counts on child
sexual assault in a trial that began this week. His
accuser, now 26, testified Tuesday that he knew as early
as sixth grade that he was gay and said he was drawn to
the good-looking, energetic priest.
The man, who was an altar
boy at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, says he met weekly
with Nolan for sexual encounters.
WKOW-TV reports the accuser
testified he decided to contact police years later after
watching the film Spotlight about Boston's priest sex
abuse scandal. He testified he was concerned Nolan could
have had contact with other children.
