For more than two decades, David Ouellette did not disclose the sexual abuse he had suffered at the hands of his priest when he was just 15.
He silently lived with the pain until 2002, the same year the Boston Globe’s Spotlight team reported on sexual assault crimes and cover-up by the Boston Archdiocese. Ouellette was driving south on Interstate 93 while listening to National Public Radio, whose program hosts were discussing the church sexual abuse scandal.
“One of the guests said, ‘For the victims that haven’t come forward yet, others will be abused by the same person that hurt you,’ ” recalled Ouellette, of Manchester, in an interview Thursday morning near the State House.
