More victims are coming forward following a lawsuit accusing a Questa priest of sexual abuse.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 reported earlier this month that a man, who isn't identified, claimed he was raped as a child by father Michael O'Brien.

His lawsuit states it happened in the 1980's, while he was an alter boy at St. Anthony's in Questa.

Three new lawsuits claim O'Brien committed similar crimes at other churches, in places like Taos, Las Vegas and Mora.

In the lawsuits, the victims accuse the archdiocese of neglecting to properly screen, train and supervise the priest.

Lawyers tell KOB 4 they believe O'Brien has since died.

The archdiocese isn't commenting on the lawsuits.
