Former Student Alleges Priest Abuse

By Bill Raack/KWMU

St. Louis – A former student at St. Paul's grade school in Fenton is accusing a Catholic priest of sexual abuse 16 years ago.

The unnamed man has filed a civil lawsuit against the St. Louis Archdiocese and Father Robert Yim, who served as a priest at St. Paul's Catholic Church in the late 1980's.

Yim was also the Barnes Hospital chaplain from 1990 to 1995.

A spokesman for the archdiocese says that Yim left the active ministry in 1995.
