In a 2003 lawsuit, Rev. Benjamin Gabriel was alleged to have sexually abused a boy over two years in the mid-1970s at St. Jude’s Church in Earlimart, California. Gabriel was also assigned to Our Lady of perpetual Help Church in Clovis, California from 1971 to 1973. Church records reveal, however, that Gabriel was not assigned to a parish after 1980 and was officially pronounced retired in 1986.
