More Lawsuits Claim Sexual Abuse At Pueblo School


POSTED: 8:56 am MST November 3, 2005

DENVER -- More lawsuits were expected to be filed in Pueblo County District Court Thursday in connection with the sexual abuse allegations of five people who once attended the former Roncalli High School.

The suits are the latest in a series claiming abuse at the hands of Brother William Mueller, who served as a music director and religion instructor at the school.

A Miami law firm said that each of the five alleged victims whose suits were being pursued Thursday went to Roncalli during the late 1960s or early 1970s, before the school shut down in 1971.

The former students said that Mueller abused them in the band room or an office after asking them to take part in a science experiment on sleep.
