New victims come forward, states they were sexually abused by former friar

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Two new victims have contacted the Diocese, with one under legal counsel, claiming they were abused by a former friar.

One victim sent a personal letter to  the Diocese in February, stating he was sexually abused as a student at Warren JFK  but wished to stay anonymous, according to a release.

Another victim sent a letter to the Youngstown Diocese in March through an attorney, stating he was abused by Brother Stephen Baker and Robert Burns, a convicted felon who served as a priest, 

The two victims are one of many new people who have come forward with allegations against Brother Baker, who stabbed himself to death back in January.

Attorney Mitchell Garabedian says more than 50 new victims are now alleging they were abused by Brother Baker, with 23 of those victims are from the Warren area.

Garabedian says the ages for the victims at the times of the alleged incidents ranged from12-18 years old, and took place between 1982 and 2007.
