Joseph Comperchio, former Catholic school teacher, accused of sexually abusing students 40 years ago

Joseph Comperchio, a former Michigan Catholic school teacher,  has been accused of child sex abuse dating back 40 years ago.  

Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office has been conducting an ongoing investigation  into clergy abuse.

Comperchio, now age 66, was arrested this week in Fort Myers, Florida, on two counts of first-degree and four counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

 

Two of his alleged victims, now adults, said they were between 9 and 11 years old when abused decades ago, between 1974 – 1977.

 Comperchio had taught drama and music at St. John Catholic School in Jackson at the time the alleged abuse took place.

Approximately  1.5 million paper documents and 3.5 million electronic documents have been seized, as part of a lager investigator into sex abuse by clergy through  Nessel’s office.

Ten people associated to the Catholic Church have been charged.
