Man Claims Galena Priest Molested Him

A former Galena man is suing the Archdiocese of Wilmington claiming the long-time priest at St. Dennis Church in Galena molested him over 100 times. Joseph Curry, now 38, claims the now-late Reverend Edward Carley molested him starting in 1981. It allegedly lasted about five years. Carley, who died in 1998, was named as one of 20 priests on a list implicated in widespread sexual abuse in the Diocese. The suit asks for general damages because Delaware law prohibits asking for a specific amount of money.
