Three civil suits have been filed alleging sexual abuse by high profile Cornwall residents.

This comes after 114 charges laid against 15 men under "Project Truth" resulted in only one conviction.

Each claim is for $3.1 million dollars.

The first, by Stuart LaBelle, is against prominent lawyer Jaques Leduc.

The other claims -- by Albert LaLonde and Robert Renshaw -- name Father Charles Macdonald, the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall, and Bishop's Eugene Laroque and Paul-Andre Durocher as the defendants.
