Irish priest allegedly molested NJ woman

A woman from New Jersey claims she was sexually abused by a priest visiting from Ireland when she was a young girl in the 1970s.

"KM" says that Fr. Charles O'Donohue began abusing her when she was growing up in Spring Lake and her mother was dying of cancer.

"KM" claims she and her brother were sexually molested for several months and that the abuse has left lasting scars. She says she almost feels almost like an American victim of Ireland's predatory priests.

The Trenton Diocese says O'Donohue returned to Ireland in 1976 and died three years later.
