Another victim claims sexual abuse against a former Fargo Priest

(WDAY TV) - Another victim is stepping forward, claiming sexual abuse against a former Fargo Priest. It's the latest in a string of allegations against Brother Raimond Rose, the Fargo Diocese and Shanley High School.

This is the latest paperwork filed today against Brother Raimond Rose. A Fargo man has now stepped forward claiming Rose sexually abused him in the late 70's.

Raimond Rose first came to the Fargo area in 1976. He worked for four years at Shanley High School as a teacher. This latest victim was one of his Shanley students. Paperwork filed today claims Rose abused Paul Mehl when he 16 or 17 during a school trip to Bismarck.

Mehl is the third case now filed against Rose in North Dakota, all claiming abuse that allegedly happened during overnight trips. The group "Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests" says they've heard from up to 30 people from Fargo who could be victims.

The three abuse cases filed here at the Cass County courthouse against Rose will be heard again in March. The latest victim says his mother did tell the diocese about the alleged abuse, but they did nothing about it.
