A Vermont man is suing a former Greek Orthodox priest from Bangor, as well as church leaders and the Greek community, after the priest was convicted of sexually assaulting him.

53-year-old Adam Metropoulos was found guilty last year of sexual abuse of a minor last year and pleaded guilty to having sexually explicit images and invasion of privacy.

He was sentenced to 6 and a half years in prison.

The man was an altar boy at St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Bangor.

The now 24-year old claims the Greek Orthodox community in Bangor, the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston and its leader, as well as the Archdiocese out of New York were all negligent in their supervision of Metropoulos.

The man is suing for physical injury, emotional distress and medical expenses.
