Dispenza accusationMary Dispenza Esfahan (1939-) was 7 when her parish priest, George Rucker, raped her in the auditorium of the Catholic school she attended in East Los Angeles. At the time, her mother, who worked in the parish, was chatting with kitchen workers in the next room. Eventually, Dispenza became a nun and a teacher at her old school, St. Alphonsus, often meeting with students in the auditorium where she remembers being molested. It was 43 years before Dispenza allowed herself to release repressed memories and confront what had happened in that room. Mary Dispenza no longer calls herself a Catholic, no longer attends church and doubts she will be able to reconcile the abuse with her faith. “Everything that I knew, all my identity, was wrapped up in the church in one way or another; I was just lost.... I felt we both lost: The church lost me, and I lost the church. And we both had invested a lot in each other for all those years.” She expected to receive $1.33 million from the 2006 settlement.
Falter accusationCindy Falter testified that when Rucker he got to St. Anthony’s, he would walk into a first grade class, pick out a student, take her off into the rectory or even on the altar and rape her often with "giving of Communion wine." A legal brief on George Neville Rucker states that over and over he fondled her on her genitals, under her clothes, massaged her breasts and nipples, licked her, and penetrated her vagina with his penis. Most of us are so fucked up. I think there’s even a couple of Rucker victims that only remotely function. He would scratch crosses in my chest with something like a needle, like a sewing needle.
